Automatically raise bugs from IE


Have you ever been in a position where someone raises a bug on a web page that you have been working on, but doesn’t supply enough information to allow you to reproduce the problem? Ok, I didn’t think it was just me ­čÖé


To try and help this, I’ve written an addin for IE to allow users to easily raise a complete bug report. When the user indicates that there is a problem on the page, the addin will create a new Team System Work Item and populate it with the following information:



  • A screenshot attached to the work item.
  • HTML source of the page and any frames and IFrames attached to the work item.
  • Any style sheets referenced by the page attached to the work item
  • Any script files referenced by the page attached to the work item
  • Details about the user’s machine and browser (OS version, browser version, screen size, …)

Hopefully this should include a significant amount of the information you’ll need to identify the problem.


For more information, some screenshots and the download, please have a look at the project space on gotdotnet – UPDATE, this project is now on CodePlex.


If this is useful or if it doesn’t quite do what you want, please feedback to me either through this site or gotdotnet. 


Neil.


UPDATE: Latest Version is here.
