jQuery UI and Windows 8 and Internet Explorer 10 touch screens
Microsoft has shipped Windows 8 and Internet Explorer 10 and the jQuery UI draggable effect doesn’t work there as is. have enhanced my small demo page here. I recently did a blog post describing how to enable the jQuery UI drag effects. In this post I showed how to get the draggable effect to work on an iPad. While that works just fine it isn’t the end of the story. The solution Fortunately the solution is a lot simpler and doesn’t require an additional plug-in. It turns out that Internet Explorer 10 has quite a good support for pointer and gesture events. Enjoy!

Tooling stack of testing Asp.MVC Views
Here’s the List CassiniDev Inline webserver NCrunch Continuous Test Runner GitHub for Windows Source Control CruiseControl.Net Continuous Integration TortoiseDiff Diff Viewer (part of TortoiseSVN) Code Rush Productivity Enhancement for Visual Studio NuGet.Net Package Manager It was great to see this level of professionalism in a demo session; an area usually reserved for cowboy programming of hello world demos. Don’t get me wrong, Jim still does a simple “Hello World” type demo, but he applies all the rigor and professionalism I would want in a real project to that example.

jQuery UI and touch screens
For example take a look at the Draggable demo on an iPad. It works perfectly with a mouse but with an iPad all you do is drag the whole browser window. Try for yourself I have created a small demo page here. I really like using jQuery UI in my web applications. But even though jQuery UI is very well tested there are some potential issues to keep in mind. One of those is using the jQuery UI controls on touch devices like the iPad. With these touch enabled devices becoming more and more popular support is quite important if you don’t know you exact client configuration.

Here is a short demo from the maker showing Tincr in action. As soon as you save the file you will see the browser window update. One gotcha with Windows 8 Unfortunately this plugin won’t install on Google Chrome running on Windows 8 even though other plugins work just fine. The standard workflow with web development is run the web application, make some changes to your CSS in Visual Studio, flip back to the browser and reload the page to see the effect. While this works relatively well it can be somewhat slow at times. How cool is that? Recommended!

What’s new in ApprovalTests.Net v.20?
To test all the events on a form and its immediate children, simply call code as shown below: WinFormsApprovals.VerifyEventsFor( new DemoForm()); WPF support for Controls It’s always been possible to test WPF windows with a simple: WpfApprovals.Verify(window); This would render the window to a.png image and verify against.approved file. Testing Email with ApprovalTests FileLauncher with DelayReporter There has been a great deal of demand to use Cassini-dev after Jim Counts demo’d it during his ASPConf video on testing ASP.MVC views. Happy testing.
