I had a blast on Tuesday at the Portland Area DotNet User Group (PADNUG) speaking about Mole 2010. There was a lot of excitement about Mole and good bit of feedback and feature requests. Thanks a lot to everyone who attended!

As promised, I am making the presentation material available for all attendees. The slide deck and DispatcherOperationManager class files are available below:

Karl Shifflett just posted his fantastic utility application that makes Mole 2010 easy to open for your own custom data types. His tool is called Mole Type Loader. Check it out and download a copy here.

Great work, Karl!

Mole 2010 at the Portland Area .NET User Group

March 28, 2011

On Tuesday April 5th 2011, I will be giving a presentation at PADNUG, the Portland Area .NET User Group. The topic of the evening is Mole 2010, the new debugging tool that I helped create for Visual Studio 2010 users. We will be taking a guided tour of Mole 2010, checking out all the cool features. Also, we will discuss the problems that were faced while developing the tool, and how those problems were solved. It should be a lot of fun. See you there!

Use Mole 2010 to explore data from the F# Interactive console

March 15, 2011

I got an interesting e-mail today from someone interested in Mole 2010. He wanted to know how to open Mole 2010 to visualize the data in his F# Interactive console. I didn’t really understand what he meant at first, but this evening I researched it and found a solution for him. According to the fellow who sent me the e-mail, the F# community has been itching for a tool that they can use to visualize their data while working on the F# command line, so hopefully this will satisfy their needs.

I wrote up a short walkthrough document on how to use Mole 2010 in the F# Interactive console. If you are interested, please download it here: Mole 2010 in F# Interactive

I’m not an F# developer by any means, so please pardon any glaring stupidities in my F# code snippets. If you know a better way to write that code, I’m open for suggestions. 🙂

Note: This usage scenario is definitely not supported by Molosoft at this time. Mole 2010 and Visual Studio’s debugger visualizer infrastructure were not designed to work in the F# Interactive console. Please see this as an “experimental” solution to the problem. I’ve listed some  known issues in the walkthrough document.

Happy Moling!
