  2. Thank you for submitting this cool story – Trackback from DotNetShoutout

  3. It works in code behind too. There are several other VERY convenient shotcuts keys in Visual Studio. Take a look at http://www.dev102.com/2008/04/17/10-visual-studio-shortcuts-you-must-know/ for more (and don’t forget the comments at the bottom either)

    Some of my favorites:

    Ctrl-K Ctrl-D : Formats your code (including html cleanup)

    Ctrl-M Ctrl-O : Collapses code to defintions only

    Ctrl-Shift-B : Build (I use this one about a thousand times a day…)
