SharpBlade depends on the SwitchBlade UI SDK (RzSwitchbladeSDK2.dll).

SwitchBlade UI SDK is provided by Razer and can be obtained from their website.

SharpBlade depends on the log4net library (provided).


It's important to note that this project doesn't build on the "AnyCPU" platform (which is the default for C# projects). It builds against x86 to stay compliant with Razer's code which targets the x86 platform. When building with MSBuild, you'd run something like:

msbuild SharpBlade.sln /p:Configuration=Release;Platform=x86

Make sure that your projects using SharpBlade are also compiled against x86.

SharpBlade does have a configuration mode that compiles it in AnyCPU, but it's untested, to run that config, simply replace Platform=x86 in the above command with Platform=AnyCPU.

Debugging / Logging

You may have to enable Native Code Debugging in the project settings to properly debug projects using SharpBlade.

SharpBlade outputs log information to the standard output stream by default, if it fails to detect any log4net config information in the default location (App.config).

If you want log4net to output to a file, you can put the following in your App.config file:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?>
    <section name="log4net" type="log4net.Config.Log4NetConfigurationSectionHandler, log4net" />
    <appender name="FileAppender" type="log4net.Appender.FileAppender">
      <file value="app.log" /> <!-- Change filename if desired -->
      <appendToFile value="false" />
      <layout type="log4net.Layout.PatternLayout">
        <conversionPattern value="%date [%thread] %-5level %logger [%property{NDC}] - %message%newline" />
      <level value="INFO" /> <!-- Change "INFO" to "DEBUG" to make logging more verbose -->
      <appender-ref ref="FileAppender" />

(Note that if you already have stuff in your App.config, just add the <log4net> section and add the <section /> tag to <configSections>)

This will cause log output to be saved in a file named "app.log" in the same directory as the executable.
