Tasks.Show is a developer resource application, where you get to full source code of complete and fully functional application that is using Windows 7 unique features like Windows Touch and the Windows Taskbar.
The MSI Installer link on this page appears to be incorrect. Clicking it just results in a redirect back to the same page. I can download the source code, but the notes on this page say to install the app via the MSI before running it in Visual Studio. Is there an MSI actually available somewhere? Thanks.
I have been using Task.Show at work highly successfully for a week now, real pleasure to work with and look at! I was hoping to find a public repository somewhere where us interested parties could submit changes or fixes.
I have found this on GitHub:
Whilst the projects appear similar, the licences do not match up.
I would like to use this nice application on several machines and therefore would like to share the datafile.
There are several ways:
1. Sync the datafile using Live Mesh or Dropbox
2. Carry the datefile on a USB stick
2. Store the data with a central webservice.
#1 Problem: Live Mesh does not allow you to sync the AppData folder. Solution: make save folder configurable.
#2 Problem: Navigating to the AppData folder and copying the file to USB. Solution: make save folder configurable.
#3 Problem: There is no webservice ;-) Solution: Host a webservice in the cloud. (nice demo app!)
I can make the adjustment to the code myself but I do think others would like this feature too.
The project compiles and runs correctly, but when I try to open MainWindow.xaml and switch to VS 2010 designer I get the following errors:
Exception has been thrown by the target of an invocation.
Provide value on 'System.Windows.Markup.StaticResourceHolder' threw an exception.

Cannot find resource named 'LineScrollViewer'. Resource names are case sensitive.

The windows activates, but doesn't show.
Adding this to this_hotkey in MainWindow.xaml.cs fixes it.
private void this_hotkey(object sender, EventArgs args)
if (this.WindowState == WindowState.Minimized)
this.WindowState = WindowState.Normal;
I am using Task.Show and I think it is a great application, but I have this problem after that I rebooted Windows 7 and started Task.Show none of all tasks I input are showing up.
What is the problem? There is anyway to troubleshoot?
