Thanks Stephen,
Looks like there is some good info there already :)

I like the idea of multiple contributers.

This will become a regular read I think, particularly while Kean has his head in the 'Cloud'.

Kerry

PS Perhaps the recent discussion here regarding using statements and disposing could be translated as a definitive reference for the general population ...

Did Some of the topics originate as ADN KnowledgeBase topics. ... they all seem to relate to specific issues that have not been previously publically documented ... and that's good in my book :)

Oopsie - shouldn't that be "acaddoc.lsp" not "acadXXXXdoc.lsp"?  The latter contains AutoDesk-created stuff, and even they recommend using the former.

Hi Kerry,

Over time, we will move all of the ADN knowledgebase to the blog. However, that's several thousand articles that we have to migrate to support our 2013 products at the same time - so that will be a slow process :-).

Cheers,

Stephen

Maybe someone could write a program to automate the process. :wink:

I have bookmarked the new blog and wanted to offer my sincere thanks for undertaking such a valuable project.
I will be a regular reader.

Yes, it is awesome ..

and no .. It means we can start asking harder questions 'cause most of the tough ones will be already answered
ie :  concentrate on skinning the cat instead of sharpening the knife.

Stephen,
Is there any way the code pane width can be made wider to allow the code a better chance of being readable (due to the narrow space provided on the blog).

You might want to consider having someone capable of doing it,
review the posted content.

There's a serious error in the contextual ribbon tab example.
The sample code repeatedly adds handlers to the Application.Idle
event, and never removes them.

See the other thread I started for a helper API for dealing with
the Idle event.

Pretty cool... I just noticed the logo for the DevBlog was provided by my company.

Aside from my long-time loathing of TypePad as a blogging platform
for topics dealing with technical content and code, I think your readers
could really do without the line numbers in code, which prevents them
from copying/pasting it into an IDE.
