Visual Studio Snippets just got pimped

15. October 2008 by thebeebs 0 Comments

If you use snippets in Visual Studio then you’ll know messing around with the XML to design and edit them can be a pain, well worry no more my snippet frustrated friend, as the all new, tap dancing, banjo playing snippet designer is set to take your code reusability troubles away. Be warned though it’s only available for Visual Studio 2008.



  • A Snippet editor integrated inside of the IDE.  It uses the native Visual Studio code editor so that you can write the snippets in the same environment you write your code.
  • It lets you easily mark replacements by a convenient right click menu.
  • It displays properties of the snippet inside the Visual Studio properties window.
  • A Snippet Explorer tool window to search snippets on your computer.
