Interfaces

Recommended Posts

So instead of having a bunch of rarely used constants taking up space we should instead do a whole lot more work?

No. Instead of not having a bunch of rarely used constants included, have an advanced package that would. Since the package would be geared towards mainly advanced users, it wouldn't have to be anything special that creates "a whole lot more work". A simple zip file would be fine. Any experienced user would know exactly what he has to do with it. Edited by Beege

As I said, more work. These builds don't just magically appear. There's an suite of build scripts used to do most of the work. Build scripts I write and maintain. It's not quite as trivial as you think it is.

I would also point out that experienced users can write their own interface constants.

I don't think it's trivial at all. The project size is huge compared to anything I've ever worked on so please don't think that. The whole goal of the zip package was to make something that you didn't have to include in your build process.

Two or three times in this thread I've seen mention of adding links to MSDN pages and that's always a bad idea..

As I recall all of the MSDN links that used to be in the help file were changed to a simple MSDN search link and that's for a very good reason. MSDN changes links almost as fast as some people change their shorts. In fact it's not just MSDN; it's Microsoft in general.

Just my two pennies worth.

They definitly change far too often to be relied on for the Help docs. It just adds one more step of having to verify links before each release of the help file.
