How to show full file path in the status bar or title bar in Sublime and Visual Studio Code

If you feel that you want to show the full file paths in your favorite editors - Sublime Text and Visual Studio Code, follow the simple steps below:

Sublime Text (on a Mac): Goto Sublime Text -> Preferences -> Settings and add the following:

{
    "show_full_path": true
}

Visual Studio Code (on a Mac): Goto Visual Studio, Code -> Preferences -> Settings and add the following:

{
    "window.title": "${activeEditorLong}"
}

As a small tweak, i added the following into my visual studio title, as it allows any custom string:

{
    "window.title": "${activeEditorLong} - work hard, play harder"
}

Now you can see the full path of the files in the top title bar.

Finding whether its Design Mode or Runtime Mode in VB.NET

Sometimes, while creating controls, either by Inherited Controls or UserControls, we will be required to skip a piece of code depending upon the design time or runtime mode. This can be done easily by the following code inside a control.









If Me.Site IsNot Nothing AndAlso Me.Site.DesignMode = True Then
    'Designtime code here
Else
    'Runtime code here
End If


Using this code in a control, we can find the mode and avoid certain errors when in Design Mode. This is mostly used in overridden event methods in Inherited Controls.
