Website TODO List (misc)

I created an OpenSearch plugin for, but I can't find a good 16x16 icon to include in the search. It would be good if the site had an official 16x16 icon for things like this (then I will upload the plugin to Mozilla).

Hi, would tapi32.dll functions be available anytime? - Ashish

Will anyone update the plugin for Visual Studio 2008 or we shall write our own ?

-- Cheers, Farzad E. (dNetGuru)


Perhaps some one could add the following Structure for safekeeping

    Public szClass As String
    Public szTitle As String
    Public hOwner As Long
    Public x As Long
    Public y As Long
    Public cx As Long
    Public cy As Long
    Public style As Long
    Public lParam As Long
    End Structure

Cheers Mike.

The current list of updates that need to be made to the site.
  • Enable an automatic way to add new modules
  • Have a page that lets you select one or more signatures and have it generate a C# or VB file that contains those signatures.

Any other suggestions?


-- Adam Nathan

Is someone going to add the module for dwmapi.dll?

Could someone delete IShellIten? It was a typo - meant to be IShellItem.

Could the Visual Studio Add-In be updated for Visual Studio 2005? -- lrs


Is this site can work with the #Develop ( Find Pinvoke function ? -- GDS

One thing that I would like to see is a page that lets you select one or more signatures and have it generate a C# file that contains those signatures. --

Good idea! I've added it to the list! -- Adam

You could go a step further and allow someone to generate an entire class for one group type. So if someone wanted all the signatures for user32 generated into one class/file they could... -- Ben S. Stahlhood II (

You definately need to get the site working in non-IE browsers. And you may want to consider removing the fading page transitions. I don't know about other people but I personally find them irritating. -- Adrian Ritchie (

I'll second this... -- DzCepheus

  • since there are other .net languages available, definitions should be independent from language, and one should be able to filter definitions by language.
  • low priority but it would be nice if code was hilited.
  • webservice should be able to add notes, tips & trick and some other stuff

-- Erdogan Kurtur (aka edokan)

  • the functions should be somehow tied to the consts you need to use them.
  • similiarly, the pinvoke visual studio add-in should add the consts with the prototype

I'd love to see all the Platform SDK headers added as HTML pages that could then be searched. Much of the time spent making a function call work is looking for the correct value of a constant or #DEFINE in a header file somewhere.

-- Kelly Summerlin

I would love to have a downloadable solution that has all of the signatures, structures, consts, etc., like Microsoft's SafeNativeMethods and UnsafeNativeMethods. -- Omer van Kloeten

Any chance of adding icm32.dll to the list?

When I expand a desktop function and then click on a sub function, my expanded list closes. This makes it difficult to go through and browse a dll.

Any chance of adding dsadmin.dll to the list, please?

It would be nice to have a way to package/ associate a set of definitions together. So if say I were doing BITS programming I could get all the BITS interfaces quickly and easily. This of course would be built on top of the previously mentioned signature/class builder.
