1 1 VSL Deep Dive Josh Heitzman - Senior Software Design Engineer

2 2 VSL is… Acronym for “Visual Studio Library” Modern C++ library targeting the Visual Studio Platform. Styled after ATL and WTL. Comprised only of header files. No binaries. Extensible and customizable (macros can be overriden to change core behavior). Not a framework like MFC, MPF,.Net Framework, etc.. Not a complete offering for the entire VS Platform

Questions/Issues: Prefix post title with “VSL” Feedback/Suggestions: Blog:

5 5 VSL Design Principles Minimize coupling Avoid feature creep Exploit the C++ language and the Microsoft Visual C++ compiler Facilitate unit testing Re-use without obstruction Responsive to requests

6 6 Minimize coupling Narrowly scoping the functionality of classes: Implement one interface Wrap one VS Service Wrap one related set of Win32 APIs Use of C++ templates to reduce hard dependencies between classes. template< class Derived_T, class VsSiteCache_T = VsSiteCacheLocal> class IVsWindowPaneImpl : public IVsWindowPane template class IExtensibleObjectImpl : public IExtensibleObject

7 7 Avoid feature creep Only the functionality required for the task at hand is implemented. Avoid investing resources in features that may not be needed. class VsOutputWindowUtilities { void OutputMessage( const wchar_t* const szMessage); void OutputMessageWithPreAndPostBarsOfEquals( const wchar_t* const szMessage); };

8 8 Exploit the C++ language and the Visual C++ compiler When possible, fail at compile time rather then runtime Make use of C++ exceptions Use C++ templates and when necessary C pre-processor macros to minimize code redundancy and maximize reuse Use of an extended version of the Resource Allocation Is Initialization paradigm template < class Type_T, size_t NumberOfElements_T> class StaticArray { C_ASSERT( NumberOfElements_T > 0); … __if_exists(Derived_T::GetViewObject) { __if_exists(Derived_T:: GetLocalRegistryCLSIDViewObject) { // Can't speceify both an object and // a clsid C_ASSERT(0); } pViewObject = rDerived.GetViewObject(); } …

9 9 Resource Allocation Is Initialization (RAII) RAII is used with all resources to ensure their lifetime is properly managed in the face of exceptions. template class Resource { ResourceType m_Resource; Resource(): m_Resource(Values::GetNullValue()) {} Resource(ResourceType resource): m_Resource(resource) {} ~Resource() { Free(); } void Free(); ResourceType Detach(); operator CastType() const; };

10 10 eXtendened Resource Allocation Is Initialization (XRAII) RAII is extended to any set of calls that need balancing. class Suspend { Suspend(This& rThis): m_rThis(rThis) { m_rThis.SendMessage(WM_SETREDRAW, FALSE, 0); m_dwMaskToRestore = static_cast (m_rThis.SendMessage( EM_SETEVENTMASK, 0, ENM_NONE)); } ~SuspendDrawAndNotifications() { m_rThis.SendMessage( EM_SETEVENTMASK, 0, m_dwMaskToRestore); m_rThis.SendMessage(WM_SETREDRAW, TRUE, 0); } This& m_rThis; DWORD m_dwMaskToRestore; };

11 11 Facilitate unit testing Mocks for nearly all VS Platform interfaces Mocks for many Windows Platform interfaces Wrapper classes around some sets of Win32 APIs Mocks for those classes Cursor CursorMock File FileMock Keyboard KeyboardMock Window WindowMock

12 12 Re-use without obstruction Many classes take template parameters Allows you to provide your own custom implementation for a dependency Some template defaults will be correct for 99% of cases A couple of classes using policy based design a smart pointer and a smart resource Optional statically bound call backs into a derived class This is accomplished via __if_exists and __if_notexists Numerous macros that can be overridden

13 13 Responsive to requests VS SDK release cycle is short CTP monthly RTW every 4 months Designs are never perfect the first time Even more so when on short cycle Breaking changes will be made as the demand arises Short cycle means there won’t be a lot of BCs with any given release

14 14 VSL provides help with… Error and exception handling Unit testing Functors and delegates Comparing various things Managing resources The basics necessary to create a VS Package Command handling VS Service consumption Creating a VS Window that hosts a dialog or Win32 control Creating a VS Document / VS Editor Automation and VS Macro recording VS Hierarchies

15 15 Error and exception handling Error handling macros that convert errors to exceptions Exception handling macros that catch and convert exceptions to HRESULTs VSL_BEGIN_MSG_MAP – message map that catches exceptions Header files: VSLErrorHandlers.h VSLExceptionHandlers.h VSL_STDMETHODTRY{ VSL_CHECKHANDLE_GLE(::GetDC(hWnd)); }VSL_STDMETHODCATCH() return VSL_GET_STDMETHOD_HRESULT();

16 16 Unit testing Unit testing framework Mocks for nearly all VS Platform interfaces Mocks for many Windows Platform interfaces Mocks for wrapper classes around some sets of Win32 APIs Including some of ATL::CWindow Header files: VSLUnitTest.h class UnitTest : public UnitTestBase { UnitTest( const char* const szTestName): UnitTestBase(szTestName) { UTCHK(false); } }; int _cdecl _tmain(int, _TCHAR*) { UTRUN(UnitTest); return VSL::FailureCounter::Get(); }

17 17 Functors and delegates Classes: Functor FunctionPointerFunctor MemberFunctionPointerFunctor Delegate Header Files: VSLCommon.h FunctionPointerFunctor functor(&OnEvent1); Delegate event1; event1 += functor; event1(); event1 -= functor();

18 18 Comparing various things Implemented primarily for the interface mocks IsStringLessThen can be used with STL algorithms Header files: VSLComparison.h

19 19 Managing resources Policy based resource managers: Pointer Resource Header files: VSLCommon.h VSLFont.h typedef Pointer CoTaskMemPointer; CoTaskMemPointer pBuffer = ::CoTaskMemAlloc(iBufferByteSize); CHKPTR(static_cast (pBuffer), E_OUTOFMEMORY); CHK(0 == ::memcpy_s(pBuffer, iBufferByteSize, GetFileName(), iBufferByteSize), E_FAIL); *ppszFilename = static_cast (pBuffer.Detach());

20 20 The basics necessary to create a VS Package Classes: IVsPackageImpl IVsInstalledProductImpl Registry map macros Header files: VSLPackage.h class Package : public IVsPackageImpl< Package, &CLSID_Package>, public IVsInstalledProductImpl< IDS_PRODUCT_NAME, IDS_PRODUCT_IDENTIFIER, IDS_PRODUCT_DETAILS, IDI_ LOGO> { VSL_BEGIN_REGISTRY_MAP(IDR_PACKAGE_RGS)... VSL_END_REGISTRY_MAP()

21 21 VsSiteCache Can be local or global IVsPackageImpl uses the global VsSiteCache by default Once a package is sited anything can then use the global cache by creating an instance of VsSiteCacheGlobal or utilizing the static methods of VsIServiceProviderUtilities directly or via the macros: VSQS - VsIServiceProviderUtilities<>::QueryService VSQCS - VsIServiceProviderUtilities<>::QueryCachedService IVsPaneWindow uses the local VsSiteCache by default Once window is sited can correctly get context sensitive services like SID_STrackSelection and SID_SVsWindowFrame

22 22 Command handling Classes: IOleCommandTargetImpl Command map macros VsFontCommandHandling Header files: VSLCommandTarget.h Samples: Menus and Commands Services Tool Window Single View Editor class MenuAndCommandsPackage :... public IOleCommandTargetImpl,... VSL_BEGIN_COMMAND_MAP() VSL_COMMAND_MAP_ENTRY( GUID_MenuAndCommandsCmdSet, cmdidMyCommand, NULL, &MenuCommandCallback) VSL_COMMAND_MAP_ENTRY_WITH_FLAGS( GUID_MenuAndCommandsCmdSet, cmdidDynVisibility2, NULL, &MenuVisibilityCallback, OLECMDF_SUPPORTED | OLECMDF_ENABLED | OLECMDF_INVISIBLE) VSL_END_VSCOMMAND_MAP()...

23 23 VS Service consumption Wrapped VS Services: VsOutputWindowUtilities ProfferServiceUtilities OleComponentUIManagerUtilities Can use global or local VsSiteCache. OleComponentUIManagerUtilities<>::ShowMessage( L"Title", L"Message"); Header files: VSLPackage.h Samples: Menus and Command Services Tool Window Single View Editor

24 24 Creating a VS Window that hosts a dialog Classes: IVsWindowPaneImpl Window VsWindowPaneFromResource Header files: VSLWindows.h class Form : public VsWindowPaneFromResource< Form, MAKEINTRESOURCE(IDD_DLG)>

25 25 Creating a VS Window that hosts a Win32 control Classes: IVsWindowPaneImpl Window ListViewWin32Control RichEditWin32Control Win32ControlContainer Header files: VSLControls.h VSLWindows.h class Document : public Win32ControlContainer< RichEditWin32Control<> > class Report : public Win32ControlContainer< ListViewWin32Control< ReportViewTraits< false, false> > >

26 26 Fully integrating a VS Window Classes VsWindowFrameEventSink ISelectionContainerImpl ISelectionContainerSingleItemImpl Header files VSLWindows.h class WindowPane : public IVsWindowPaneImpl, public VsWindowFrameEventSink, public ISomeInterface, public ISelectionContainerSingleItemImpl< WindowPane, ISomeInterface>

27 27 Creating a VS Document / VS Editor Classes: IVsEditorFactoryImpl IVsFindTargetImpl SingleViewFindInFilesOutputWindowIntegrationImpl File DocumentPersistanceBase Header Files: VSLFile.h VSLFindAndReplace.h VSLWindow.h Samples: Single View Editor

28 28 Automation and VS Macro recording Classes: IExtensibleObjectImpl VsMacroRecorder Header Files: VSLAutomation.h Samples: Single View Editor void RecordCommand( wchar_t* szCommand) { if(m_Recorder.IsRecording( GetVsSiteCache())) { CStringW strLine = L"ActiveDocument.Object."; strLine += szCommand; m_Recorder.RecordLine( strLine); }

29 29 Classes: IVsHierarchyImpl IVsUIHierarchyImpl IVsHierarchyEventsDelegate VsHierarchyRootItemBase VsHierarchyItemBase VsUIHierarchyItemBase VsHierarchyRootItemBase HierarchyNode C++ Interfaces: IVsHierarchyItem IVsUIHierarchyItem IVsHierarchyRootItem IVsUIHierarchyRootItem Header Files: VSLHierarchy.h VSLHierarchyNode.h Samples: Extensiblity Explorer

30 30 Miscellaneous Win32 Resource Managers/Wrappers Classes: Library – HMODULE’s from ::LoadLibrary DeviceContext – HDC’s from ::GetDC Cursor – HCURSOR from ::LoadCursor Keyboard These classes only provide what was necessary for the reference samples, but can be easily expanded as needed. For example: Library has no methods (just constructor/destructor) DeviceContext only has EnumFontFamiliesExW Cursor only has Activate Keyboard only has IsKeyDown

31 31 Data Collection Do you: Have existing packages written in C++? Use VSL in C++ packages? Plan to use VSL in C++ packages in the future? Unit test existing C++ packages? Use VSL for unit testing C++ packages? Plan to use VSL for unit testing C++ packages in the future? Plan to write new packages in C++ in the future? What kind of package (project system, editor, designer, etc.)? Plan to expand add additional features in C++? What type of features? Want better tools for creating scenario tests? Want sample scenario tests?

32 32 Data Collection continued Plan to migrate existing C++ package to managed? C++/CLI? C#? Other? Over what time frame?
