Well, I have finally found time to get my object repository editor working well. It's what I call in a "internal tool beta" state, which means it's not very pretty but works well. Since there will be only two of us using it, seems like a fine state. I know, I know....any code worth writing is worth writing nicely. However, given the timeframe in which I've had to work, I've done a fair job. Now, that's not to say it won't benefit from some nice refactoring. As a matter of fact, I've refactored a large portion of it already.
Now, on to my next task: I need to create something QTP can call to reset the timezone on a machine. We have timezone specific functionality to test, so I have to be able to change it on the fly. I know I can use an API call to achieve this, but the trouble is that QTP will not handle the Type statement (since it's not supported by VBScript).
So what to do?
I will write a .dll that contains the code I need and then let QTP call that. I am pretty sure this will work. I'll update this blog as I go.
Also, I was wondering if anyone could recommend a good book on C#. We are officially a C# shop (on the development side), and I want to get familiar with it. I will be taking a crash course on ASP.Net, and then start getting into the C#. I have been told I need to abandon my VB.Net ways...heresy, says I!
