In my last post I mentioned that I would be blogging from www.buildingsecurecode.com after leaving Microsoft. It's up and ready to go right now!
As my first post, I thought I would write about Programmatically Displaying the Windows User Account Control (UAC) Elevated Shield Icon in .NET Windows Form Application Buttons. A couple days ago I was fiddling around with making UAC aware/compliant applications in .NET and could find absolutely no clear documentation on how to get the elevated shield icon to appear on buttons mapping to elevated tasks and I can only imagine others are going through the same frustration. In this blog entry I walk you through a sample application as well as give you the .NET code you need to start displaying those UAC elevated shield icons. Enjoy and much more to come!
