Visual Studio 2005 Code Snippet Editor…


I’ve been working with Visual Studio 2005 for a while now, for a recent demo I needed some code snippets, this had me working in everyone’s favorite editor “Visual Notepad.NET 2005 SP1 Beta 3” <g> to hand create code snippet files – what a waste of time! – You would think there would be a handy, dandy Code Snippet editor/creator out there somewhere – Surprise! – the Visual Studio team have released a Code Snippet Creator/Editor PowerToy.

    There is one already included with VS2005 – XML Editor. It’s got all the tools you need to create snippets, including a snippet for snippets! Create a new xml file, type <snippet, hit TAB, fill in the blanks and you have your very own snippet.
