  1. In Topic: TDD: How to correctly implement?

    Posted 21 Dec 2014

    First of all, you are testing the wrong thing. You should have two levels of tests. Logic tests and UI tests. The logic test would verify that the results are being generated correctly and stored into your data model. The UI tests would verify that your view is databinding to yoru data model correctly.

    Most people trust their UI framework (WPF, WinForms, ASP.NET etc.) to have done its own tests to get the databinding right, so they don't bother doing the UI tests. They will just concentrate on the logic tests.

    Or put it this way, when you call your OS's equivalent of PutPixel(), you typically won't write a test to verify that it successfully put the pixel of the right color in the right location, right?
  2. In Topic: colors problem in c++

    Posted 21 Dec 2014

    BTW, the way you are using GetAsyncKeyState() will lead to a very laggy and inconsistent experience for the user. I suggest reading the documentation and change your approach to how you are using it.

    With your current code, you are only checking for the key state when you are painting the '@'. What if the user pressed the arrow keys while you were drawing the rest of the map? You say, "but the least significant bit will be set anyway if the key was pressed since I last checked for it". In response to that, I recommend re-reading the documentation more closely and pay particular attention to where it states that you should not rely on this behavior.
  3. In Topic: Need help with c++ multi OpenFileDialog

    Posted 21 Dec 2014

    Hmmm... You set the Multiselect property to true, without reading the documentation? RTFM. Read the "Remarks" section. It tells you exactly how to get the all the file names.
  4. In Topic: Alternating itunes(any player) playlists... need direction

    Posted 21 Dec 2014

    Sorry. Misread the previous post to mean that switching to each playlist would make it start over from the beginning with the same order.
  5. In Topic: Windows store - xaml table is not displayed

    Posted 21 Dec 2014

    How do you know that the data binding is working correctly if nothing is displaying?
