Autumn Nesting...

As my workload with Phurnace diminishes, DevRiot for .Net picks up.

Multi-dimensional array support is alive and well as the snapshot shows. Support for generics will take some time. The desktop and compact frameworks behave differently and the behavior of the engine needs to reflect this.

Well, the snapshot:

DynArray's P.S.

The one-click assert has been moved to a context menu where we will be able to provide a better way to handle assert conditions: greater than, etc, to return value, out parameters and post-test states...

DynArray...

The dynamic array, or data structures, logic is almost ready. We just need to add the dynamic shrinking to the nodes' context menu. Here we have a series of snapshots of how it's working:

1) Double-click the node to set or change the array length.



2) Type in the new desired length.



3) The tree readjusts itself.

Protect thy brand

It should have hit a nerve or something but after I published the latest progress snapshot. One of the monitoring bots brought a botfriend that specializes in brand and IP protection (?)

Thanks for keeping our IP in good hands...

One-click assert!

This is another of the progress snapshots: one click assert.

This feature allows the user to easily set the expected value, or range of values that an object should have. In this context a null or not null return value.

It does not matter if the object is private to a private field: just click away and forget about typing Asserts, PrivateObjects, or any of those rudimentary approaches!

Hit first, hit twice

Apparently USA's congress has changed the patent rules for a "first to the clerk" type of deal. Not good or bad, just a change in the playground.

DevRiot for .Net is coming along well, variable number of parameters and arrays are cleanly and dynamically handled.

Comparing usability with competitors...

Still doing interesting stuff with my buddies @ phurnace.
