Additional Code Snippets for C# in Visual Studio 2005

Microsoft, Programming, Visual Studio No Comments

c# Code SnippetsFor those of you unfamiliar with Code Snippets, a new feature in Visual Studio 2005, MSDN describes code snippets as:

“IntelliSense Code Snippets are reusable, task-oriented blocks of code. Visual Studio 2005 includes code snippets covering tasks ranging from creating a custom exception, to sending an e-mail message, to drawing a circle. A set of Visual Basic and Visual C# Code Snippets are included in the Visual Studio 2005 box.”

However, C# programmers were not given the complete set of Code Snippets available to our VB Compadres.

Microsoft has now corrected this issue.

Task Based Code Snippets for C# are now available from MSDN, giving C# developers the complete list of snippets available in Visual Basic. However, the installation of these snippets is a bit cumbersome.

To relieve this problem, Jeff Atwood of Coding Horror has created a registry file that will greatly simplify installation of these snippets.

Grab the new snippets or the simplified registry installer below:

You only need one of the packages above. I highly recommend Jeff Atwood’s package.

As mentioned in my last post.
I have finished upgrading the blog to Community Server 2.0

Not so sure I like the new logo and color scheme, but the administration section is much improved over 1.1.
