I’m preparing a more interesting article than this, tidying up the code, removing the hardcoding, so when I’ve doubts about how to add arguments in order to test my application and a new console project always asks me.
True story: create a few variables and use them as a request that never comes… because we want to debug as fast as we can. We don’t want to open a console and copy again and again the same command with arguments in order to simulate a real call.
However, I would not like to do this because I don’t want my code has to live with path strings, variables made constant, and so on. The truth is that the solution is quite simple: just select the project with the right button, access the Properties option and add the arguments in the Debug tab, using the Command line arguments section.
New year’s promise: Less hardcoding even in the demos!
