One of my favorite features in Visual Studio is Snippets. I find them very useful when trying to code something really really fast. Till now I had to write them all by hand and then import them on VS, well not any more.
Matthew has released a first version of the Snippet Designer. In it you’ll find:
- A Snippet Editor hosted in the IDE which lets you edit the code, make replacements and change snippet properties
- A Snippet Explorer which lets you search for Snippet files on your computer an quickly open and edit them.
- A context menu item inside of the VB, C# and XML editor that lets you export any highlighted code into the snippet editor
You can find more information about it in Mathew’s blog http://blogs.msdn.com/matt/archive/2008/09/21/the-snippet-designer-is-released.aspx
