Adding Custom Controls to a Work Item Type

Last week I posted about the availability of the Visual Studio 2005 SP1 beta. I mentioned that the ability to add custom controls to a Work-Item Type was perhaps my favorite feature added in SP1. Well it looks like Naren Datha has already posted a tutorial which explains how to take advantage of this new functionality. Sweet!

Naren has listed some great ideas I hadn't thought of yet for using this functionality. Another one I heard (via Eric Lee) would be to add a custom Windows Media Player control which could be used to playback test repros or even requirements storyboards. I really can't wait until SP1 is officially released...! Please don't forget to log your feedback about the SP1 beta if you find bugs or have suggestions. You can log your feedback using the Connect site, which also happens to be the place you can download the beta from.
