[OC] I made a program for Windows which lets you create sticky preview thumbnails
4 projects | /r/programming | 18 May 2023
This was mostly a project for fun, to dive into CsWin32 - a PInvoke source generator as well to fiddle around with the DWM API.
Change Secondary screen rotation using CMD
2 projects | /r/PowerShell | 25 Mar 2023
If you haven't seen the CsWin32 project, you can use it to generate all your bindings as well. It generates the raw extern bindings, and then friendly wrappers for C# (where possible) that also work really well with PowerShell.
Hello. Can someone please give me some fun and cool projects for powrshell? Thank you.
2 projects | /r/PowerShell | 17 Mar 2023
If you're looking for something different, try out writing windows programs using Win32 via CsWin32. You can generate a DLL that you Add-Type into PowerShell that lets you access all of Win32.
PInvoke.net: the interop wiki

Also worth mentioning is this C# source generator for generating P/Invoke methods for win32 APIs: https://github.com/microsoft/CsWin32

Idk what all the hubub is about FolderBrowserDialog, it's pretty easy to make the Win32 calls (you can even code generate the interop calls).

Fixing my BF1942 woes with Win32 APIs
4 projects | dev.to | 20 Jan 2022
I tried out both TerraFX.Interop.Windows and CsWin32, ultimately settling on the latter. CsWin32 was a little less intimidating as the API is generated based on strings in a text file rather than containing everything at once. Also I like jumping to definition of types to read more and explore APIs etc and doing that to one of the types in the TerraFX library crashed Visual Studio. That's more of a VS problem than a TerraFX library but still - CsWin32 would work great for what I'm doing.
How to interact with Win 11 API?
2 projects | /r/csharp | 12 Jan 2022
Pick your P/Invoke library of choice. For instance, CsWin32, or if you feel braver and want to go faster, TerraFX.Interop.Windows
Recommendation for software to aid with creating a C# wrapper around a c++ library
2 projects | /r/csharp | 22 Jun 2022
Or take a look at the tools CppSharp or SWIG, s.a. Example for SWIG to wrap C++ library in .Net 6.
COM or C++/CLI layer for long-term maintenance?
3 projects | /r/cpp | 30 May 2021
I would give CppSharp a crack first. It generates a .net wrapper using pinvoke.
