AIDE Explorer View of LightSwitch Modal Dialogs

The LightSwitch Explorer window now has a view to show all LightSwitch modal dialog windows in a solution. There is no need to click through several layers of menus and designer commands to find modal dialogs, the information is served up in a convenient and easily digestible format. Navigate to LightSwitch Screen Designer from the modal dialog view with a simple double-click. It nicely complements the standard LightSwitch designer.

Surfacing all data in tabular format, can improve productivity, in particular, when working with medium to large LightSwitch projects.


There are many more features in design, development and testing. This past few weeks have been busy with the Visual Studio 2013 Preview and Michael Washington’s new E-Book released and ComponentOne providing an exclusive release of the ComponentOne Studio for LightSwitch HTML to the members of the LightSwitchHelpWebsite.com! For a member’s discount code offer you must register at LightSwitch Help Website , the main independent LightSwitch community website.

Try them, buy them, and support your LightSwitch tooling ISVs.
