Incorrect MSDN documentation: The space after Global:: should be removed

leave a comment »


Code sample posted at would not work and would yield you an ArgumentException with an error message as below:

Error message:


The parameter is incorrect. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x80070057 (E_INVALIDARG))

   at EnvDTE.Command.set_Bindings(Object pVar)



Fix it by removing the extra space after Global::

Code in the sample above should be changed to

//Notice there is no space after Global::
bindings[0] = "Global::CTRL+SHIFT+ALT+Y"; 
bindings[1] = "Global::CTRL+SHIFT+ALT+X"; 


Three hours for a triviality. Nothing unusual.
