Categories: Documentation - Code commenting, IDEs - IDE add-ins

Author: Microsoft

Collection of utilities and tools developed by Microsoft that enhance Visual Studio.
Includes:
- VB Commenter: add XML comments to your VB .Net code and have them extracted into an XML comment file at build time.
- VSWindowManager: design custom window layouts that you can store and recall from the Windows menu. Automatically switch from code to design layouts as well.
- OnlineSearch: lets you search the internet from within the text editor of VS.NET 2003.
- Control Outline: add-in that adds a tool window to the IDE allowing the developer to see a hierarchical representation of the controls layed out on the Windows Forms design surface.
- VSMouseBindings: you have a 5 button mouse, why not be able to assign all five mouse buttons to commands within VS?
- VSTweak: use custom file extensions in VS, edit your command window aliases, MRU list control, edit debugger output for classes, and more...
- VSEdit: load a file, or a set of files, into a currently running instance of Visual Studio .NET 2003. No more extra windows opening, just pure editing bliss.
- Custom Help Builder: create a custom help collection for your XML-style commented VB or C# class libraries. Your custom help will be fully integrated into Visual Studio .NET 2003, so your topics will be accessible from Dynamic Help, F1, Search, Help Index, and Help Contents.
- VSCMDShell Window: access to the command shell CMD.exe and the VS commands from the same window.
