This is a pretty cool webcast, where I’ll show you a little class library that I threw together to aid in adding ClickOnce features to your application. Here is the source code. http://www.wjsteele.com/clickonce.zip. In that zip file, you’ll find a project that contains a few classes, there’s a class for an UpdateLink control, one for a VersionLabel control and finally, the control called the “TaskBarNotifier” which includes a little Toast (blatently taken from John O’Byrne’s CodeProject article – http://www.codeproject.com/cs/miscctrl/taskbarnotifier.asp) to notify the user when a new update is avilable, and the current staus of deployment. Very cool stuff, check it out.
