"Hello Community"     


Demos delivered in this session

  • Accessing comment information in list formatting and advance form adjustments - draw people’s attention to discussions around selected list items by more prominently displaying the number of comments on each item.   Accomplish this by using CommentCount, a fluent UI icon and formatting.   Be aware of and adjust for differences between how icon containing number renders slightly differently in forms, lists and tiles views.  Use sample script in your list today!   

  • Getting started on using Microsoft Teams Yeoman generator v3 – get newest Microsoft Teams App Project Generator - #YoTeams at the Repo.  Presenter takes viewer from generator installation, project creation – scaffolding of files, to VS code and explains created files.  Note:  not using class based React components but using functional components and React hooks.  Then create a build and install app – a configurable tab, in Teams.  New V3 capabilities called out through demo.         

  • The Microsoft Graph Toolkit in Teams with Blazor – more comfortable in C#, Server-side, .NET development as opposed to React, then this Blazor demo is for you.  The demo focuses on using the Microsoft Graph Toolkit (MGT) in Server-side Blazor via SignalR in Teams App Dev.   Authentication is handled by providers from MGT.  Blazor components call Microsoft Graph functions to get list of teams, agenda, usernames and roles. 

Thank you for your work. Samples are often showcased in Demos.
