NuGet redirection and package retrieval errors in Visual Studio 2015

Yesterday I have experience that I tried to install NuGet Package but an error occurred while retrieving package metadata in Visual Studio 2015.


NugetError.01

After getting some try and catch. I found out that the VS2015 is configured to connect the API v3 of the NuGet.org. So I tried to add another one with the URL on API v2 of the NuGet.org and I am then able to install any NuGet package. So I think that if you hit into the same error, this is a good to try.

NugetSetting.01


NugetSuccess.01

 

DataBinding in second, third…TabPages

I have experience in few months ago. I was working on a WinForm application. I placed a TabControl with multiple TabPages. However, I found out that the dataBinding does not work on the second, third or later TabPage controls. After getting some error and test. I found out that the controls in these tabPage are not being loaded until it is “showed”.

 

So I have some code sample to resolve this, you may try to place it under Page.Load event handling,


    foreach (TabPage tp in tabControl1.TabPages)
    {
        tp.Show();
    }
    this.tabControl1.SelectedTab = this.tabPage2;

 

// here I am going to make sure that the dataBinding is completed before select into other tabPages.
// You may try to loop this one by one tabPage if you have more tabPages
    this.tabPage2.BindingContextChanged += (object sender, EventArgs e) => {
        this.tabControl1.SelectedTab = this.tabPage1;
    };

    this.tabControl1.SelectedTab = this.tabPage1;


Hope this article could help you a bit.

So you’d better to update favorites in your Browser and point to the new URL now.
