How to Dock the Vista Toolbars to the Edge of the Screen

I found a way to dock Vista toolbars to the edge of the screen since drag and drop does not work anymore:
1) Create a new folder on the desktop
2) Drag it to on of the edges so it would become a toolbar
3) Right click the toolbar and select the toolbar that you want to show
4) Now you can define the toolbar behaviour (Auto Hide, Alway on Top)

How to Get Build Result Details using TFS API - Part 1

In this series of posts I would explain how to use TFS API in order to retrieve build result details as they appear in the build report.

In order to retrieve result details for a build we need to create a BuildStore object. There is an example on how to create a BuildStore object on a previous post: Get Build Changes. The example take into consideration that you have already created the BuildStore object and it is named buildStore.

BuildData buildData = buildStore.GetBuildDetails(buildStore.GetBuildUri(teamProject, buildNumber));

Now that we've got the BuildData object we can retrieve the build details that appear in the summary section of the report:


On the next post for this series I will explain how to retrieve the details for the "Build Steps" section of the report.
