Greetings, Mad Scientists,
Having tried out VS’ Visual Assist addon recently, I found it added a lot of functionality I felt was missing from most IDEs.
One of the features I found most useful in VA was the ability to give sections of code their own shorthand form inside of a custom snippet editor window.
A good example of this sort of usage would be a template for a For Loop, not only would it save time in writing; you wouldn’t need to worry about layout or formatting.
Another example would be a multi-line comment template:
(The cursor is placed here and the user is prompted for input)
Here is the reference page for VA’s snippets:
I know that this is a lot to ask for, but I hope to see this sort of functionality in SK’s future
Thanks for all that you do
