  • VS.NET 2008 Beta 2 / .NET 3.5: Windows Forms ComboBox contains nasty bug.

    The Windows Forms combobox control contains a nasty a lot of people who will try .NET 2.0 applications on .NET 3.0 will run into: the Sorted property makes comboboxes unable to bind to data: they stay empty. This is particular bad, because any solid working application for .NET 2.0 using comboboxes in a databinding scenario (and I estimate a lot of applications fall into that category) which uses the Sorted property to get sorted results will run into this problem, and it has huge consequences: any user who has .NET 3.5 installed will run into this, no matter what you defined as supportedRuntime in the .config file of your application.

The funny thing about these tagging games is that despite the useless babble that's mostly cluttering the tag-posts, there are always a few gems to find, things which will make you think "oh that's cool, I didn't know that!". I hope my useless list will trigger some of these thoughts as well .
