Like most .NET developers, I used to do VB/VBA coding before C# came along. But, one thing I always missed in in the C# code editor was the lines that the VB editor puts between methods. An an avid user of CodeRush and Refactor! Pro, which itself does code structure painting in Visual Studio, I’ve created a DxCore Plugin that draws lines between methods which (IMHO) improves on the ones in the VB code editor.
Here’s a screen shot of it in action:
And here’s the exciting options page:
Even if you’re a VB.NET person you might like to try it to see if it works any better for you than VB’s built-in lines (although I guess you’d need to turn off the built-in method-separating lines somewhere in Tools Options).
The project is hosted on Rory Becker’s DX Core Community Plugins Google Code project, where you can download the source and binaries.
Let me know how you get on with it in the comments 🙂
