Your project does not reference ".NETFramework,Version=v4.6.2" framework

After playing around with the dotnet upgrade assistant(see this previous post) I did an undo of the changes that were made by the tool through source control. However after doing that my code refused to compile.

Here is the error message I got:

Your project does not reference ".NETFramework,Version=v4.6.2" framework. Add a reference to ".NETFramework,Version=v4.6.2" in the "TargetFrameworks" property of your project file and then re-run NuGet restore.

When I took a look at my project settings, I didn’t see something wrong…

I tried a ‘Clean Solution’, didn’t help…

I deleted the bin folder and did a ‘Rebuild’ of the solution, didn’t help either…

In the end what did the trick was to remove the obj folder for every project. Once the folder was removed, the error disappeared when I recompiled the application.

XUnit - Assert.Collection

A colleague asked me to take a look at the following code inside a test project: My first guess would be that this code checks that the specified condition(the contains) is true for every element in the list.  This turns out not to be the case. The Assert.Collection expects a list of element inspectors, one for every item in the list. The first inspector is used to check the first item, the second inspector the second item and so on. The number of inspectors should match the number of elements in the list. An example: The behavior I expected could be achieved using the Assert.All method:

Angular --deploy-url and --base-href

As long you are running your Angular application at a root URL (e.g. ) you don’t need to worry that much about either the ‘--deploy-url’ and ‘--base-href’ parameters. But once you want to serve your Angular application from a server sub folder(e.g. ) these parameters become important. --base-href If you deploy your Angular app to a subfolder, the ‘--base-href’ is important to generate the correct routes. This parameter will update the <base href> tag inside the index.html. For example, if the index.html is on the server at /angularapp/index.html , the base href should be set to <base href="/angularapp/"> . More information: --deploy-url A second parameter that is important is ‘--deploy-url’. This parameter will update the generated url’s for our assets(scripts, css) inside the index.html. To make your assets available at /angularapp/, the deploy url should
