Is it Unit Testing or What?

It’s not a secret we’ve been using unit testing and test-driven development for Aspose.Words from the beginning. I’ve also studied, used and taught unit testing and many XP practices in the “early days”, for example, my Practical Unit Testing articles in MSDN from 2000. It long ago became a part of nature, yet here is something new I noticed that grabbed me.

Most of the unit tests I wrote before, conformed to the “commonly accepted understanding” of what a unit … Continue Reading

Bad Looking Metafiles

.NET Framework is surely very powerful but some things are just weird. Goodness knows why Microsoft decided to implement rendering metafiles (such as WMFs and EMFs) and converting them to bitmaps using no smoothing thus eliminating all benefits of vector graphics. They could at least provide some option to choose whether or not to use anti-aliasing but they didn’t do that. Applications including MS Word do render metafiles properly but you will get ugly output trying to render them using System.Drawing.Graphics, especially if your metafile … Continue Reading
