WitCustomControls for Visual Studio 2013 released!

Last week we published the release of the WitCustomControls. This time Stéphane Lagacé has done most of the work of by updating the MultiValueControl with autocompletion and data binding. I’ll cover these features in a later post.

Other than the work from Stéphane, the controls have been recompiled against the 2013 assemblies.

The control pack contains the following work item custom controls:

  • MultiValueControl: a ComboBox to accept and show multiple values for a field by showing a list of checkboxes. More details here: MultiValue Control
  • ScreenshotControl: a simple control (button) to capture a screenshot as a work item attachment. More details here: Screenshot controls.
  • AttachmentsControl: this control cab be used as an alternative to the standard file attachments dialog. More details here: Screenshot controls.
  • WebBrowserControl: displays a web browser inside a work item. More details here: Web browser control.

To install the files, download the file matching your TFS version. For TFS 2012 and 2013 the .zip file contains an installer for the Windows controls and a .zip file for the Web Access controls.

Download the controls here.

One thought on “WitCustomControls for Visual Studio 2013 released!”

  1. Hi Mathias

    I’m currently in the process of creating my own custom control. As we are using 2012 and 2013 products, we want to use WPF controls. I have some problems getting it working inside of a work item. With Windows Forms it works without problems. Did you already tried WPF controls and if yes, could you give me a short example?

    Thanks a lot!
