Outlook–Attachment notification

Aah! That’s a quick surprise and useful, of course!

Last night, I’s drafting a mail in Outlook for my colleague, but forgot to attach a file. And, when I hit Send! You know what happened, Next?

Boom!

Here come’s the attachment notification.

Cool! Isn’t it?

Oh, Wait! If you don’t have an Outlook account, do give a try! You gonna love it! I bet!

VS2010–Invisible line in text editor

Last week, I jumped into a beautiful bug in Visual Studio 2010. I’s playing with WebAPI and all of a sudden I noticed that one of my line-of-code is invisible in the text editor.

What? Yes, That’s true! Take a look.

I binged for few minutes, but never came across any threads that discuss this invisible behavior. So, I hope that might because of the extension(s) that I’ve installed.

Hmm…Disabling each extension and identifying the root cause won’t help me because I’m so addicted to all the extension that I’ve installed, so far. Or else, yes you may call it as my laziness.

But now, I’m seriously thinking about an InPrivate mode in Visual Studio, similar to that of Internet Explorer (8+). So that I can easily load VS2010 without any extension and check whether this is a product bug or an extension bug.

Thanks!

Sql Server–Saving changes is not permitted, from Design View

Saving changes is not permitted. The changes you have made require the following tables to be dropped and re-created. You have either made changes to a table that can’t be re-created or enabled the  option Prevent saving changes that require the table to be re-created.

Did you ever got this warning dialog box, when you try to save a Table after modifying through design-view in Sql Server 2008. You will encounter this with fresh installation of Sql Server and when tried to save an already created Table, after modification.

That’s because when you do Table modifications through the Design-View, tables are internally dropped and re-created. The reason why you get this error! However, you can by-pass this error by deselecting - Prevent saving changes that require table re-creation from Tools –> Options –> Designers. Check the below screenshot.

Hope this helped.

Thanks.
