Microsoft All-In-One Code Framework Sample Browser v4 is now available across the globe. "With this release, we embrace the hope of giving global developers a completely new and amazing experience to enjoy over 700 Microsoft code samples," the Jialiang Ge of Microsoft All-In-One Code Framework team stated.
"Sample Browser v4 is completely redesigned from tip to toe -- its user interface, sample search and download experience have numerous changes."
The main user interface of the Sample Browser is composed of three columns:
"Left column is the search condition bar. You can easily enter the query keywords and filter the result by Visual Studio versions, programming languages, and technologies. The search history is recorded so you can resort to your past search with a single simple click," explains Jialiang.
Jialiang notes, "Middle, sample browser lists the sample search result - with added customer ratings and the number of raters, and integrated social media helps share certain samples in your network."
"You can selectively download the samples, or download all samples after the search is completed. All downloading samples are queued. You can find their download status by clicking the "DOWNLOADING" button."
"If an update is available for the sample, you'll be reminded to get the sample update. The sample download and cancel are very flexible."
And, the "right column displays the most detailed information of the selected code sample. You can learn all properties of the sample before you decide to download it, read the sample documentation, and in the near future, we'll add the "social" feature that allows you to learn what people are saying about the sample in the social network," said Jialiang.
Also, newly added NEWEST samples, that when clicked displays samples released in the past two months. Clicking it again will cancel the NEWEST filter.
Jialiang notes, "The Sample Request Service page introduces how you can request a code sample directly from Microsoft All-In-One Code Framework if you cannot find the wanted sample in Sample Browser."
Finally, the settings page, lets you configure the sample download location and the network proxy.
If you have already installed last version of Sample Browser, you simply need to restart the application. You will get the auto-update, else download here.
