New article: WaitCursor/HourGlass cursor for .Net Windows Forms project

I just published my latest article.

Lately, I was trying to use the Edit-And-Continue feature of Visual Studio 2019 and remembered that this feature has not been working for me on 2 different computers but never had the chance to dig to find the root cause. I was able to edit my code, but the modifications were not recompiled on the fly and considered until I stopped the debugging session and start the debugging all over again. Not really the spirit of that feature and counter-productive! Now that I have some time, I went the extra mile and found the culprit: PostSharp.

In this article, I will not bash on PostSharp. I still think that it is an unbelievably valuable tool for some projects but maybe not all of them as the Edit-And-Continue feature is too important. I will show you how I replaced the cursor aspect (easily implemented using an attribute through Aspect Oriented Programming) with code.
