Have your C# coding style analysed by Microsoft, part 2
Just as a small update on the use of StyleCop. I disagreed with some of the rules, like having to use spaces rather than tabs. It's not really an annoying rule, the only thing about it is that you have to agree on using spaces or tabs and then stick to it.
But still, I found out you can tune StyleCop to your needs. When you go the folder where the application is installed (on my machine C:\Program Files\Microsoft StyleCop 4.3) you will see a small application named StyleCopSettingsEditor.exe. Using that tool you can switch the rules supplied by the tool on or off. From a command prompt simply run the following command line:
You will then see the following user interface:
Using this interface, you can simply select which rules are appropriate in your projects.
