I have uploaded to this site a 68 minute video of the Writing Custom FxCop Rules
(190Mb) presentation that I gave at VBUG
at the annual VBUG Conference in Reading in October 2006. Sincere thanks to Christian Mitchell of VBUG for making this available to me. The slides for this presentation are also available for download here
. The video itself is a combination of slides, demos and even live footage of me (there had to be a downside) explaining how to write rules. The version I have uploaded has a low bit rate to keep the size small (ish) so if VBUG make this available then you might prefer a version with a higher bit rate.
As there isn’t much information available on this subject I hope you find this video useful. Almost all of the information is still correct as I write this post (July 2007) but obviously you can replace the code name "Atlas" with "Microsoft ASP.NET AJAX
". In addition be aware that this presentation was given before the release of Visual Studio 2005 Service Pack 1 and the comments about using Web Deployment Projects although still correct have been superceded by using the Web Application Projects that were resurrected from Visual Studio 2003.
You can download the FxCop rules that I talk about in this presentation on the .NET Internationalization
. And if you still feel like you don’t have enough information about writing FxCop rules you can read Chapter 13 of .NET Internationalization
entitled "Testing Internationalization Using FxCop".
