Been a while…

February 17, 2013

I’ve had major problems with the last version of Simple TV Library (that never got posted to the Store).  It’s much better than it was before, but it was still unstable.  There were thread access problems all over the place which made updating the UI problematic for certain things.  It lagged a little bit as a result.  In the end, it made me want to take a break for a little while. 

But I’ve now discovered something amazing called MVVM Light.  I would have never been able to use it had I not gone through the trials of using Microsoft’s BindableBase and their simple version of a ViewModel.  Every little bit of experience counts though and decided to try and use it for Simple TV Library.  The results have been astounding.  Most of my code has shrunk in size.  It’s well organized… it’s just so much easier to add new functionality.  Oh, and the designer in VisualStudio actually shows me how my project is going to look without me having to run it all the time.  Awesome.

Anyways, the main page is nearly done.  I’m also almost done with the background methods that check for file/folder changes and download information from TheTVdb.com.  Just with this being completed, I can tell this is going to be good.  I’ve got my drive back and maybe I can get it done by next weekend.

    Do you have an estimated eta for this being completed?

  2. Trying to be done sometime this weekend. The certification process has been pretty quick lately and I’ve got a plan to pass it despite the problems I’ve had in the past.

  3. Ok, not exactly this weekend. I’m rushing to finish today.
