There’s a new type of technical article on MSDN called “Visual How Tos.” These articles feature videos that show how to perform specific tasks, and they include short written articles with code samples or links to code samples and other examples in the documentation.
Visual Studio 2005 Tools for Office Second Edition has six Visual How Tos right now, and by the time you read this, there will probably be more! We have a schedule to publish at least one each week through June, and probably beyond. Here are the first six:
Adding Custom Task Panes to 2007 Office Applications Using Visual Studio 2005 Tools for Office SE
Automating a Word 2007 Document Using Visual Studio 2005 Tools for Office SE Ribbon Support
Automating PowerPoint 2007 Using a Custom Task Pane
Binding Data to User Controls in Excel Using Visual Studio 2005 Tools for Office SE
Searching the Outlook 2007 Inbox for Items with Subjects Containing Specific Words
Using Visual Studio 2005 Tools for Office SE to Create PowerPoint Add-Ins
On each Visual How To page is a place to rate the video and leave comments. Please let us know what you think!
