HELP: Visual Studio.NET Beautifier

Posted 22 February 2006 - 09:59 AM

I am wondering how one can write a plug-in / add-on for Visual Studio.NET. I
would like to write a code beautifier for my Visual Studio.NET IDE.

I want the plug-in / add-on to be integrated in the Visual Studio.NET IDE
and automatically removes trailing white spaces (tabs, spaces, etc). Then it
could replace all tabs with 4 spaces and vice-versa. Then another feature
would be to remove/strip all comments.

I know there are various 3rd party tools exists, however none of them do ALL
the above 3 I want in one package, plus they are self-contained in their own
editor and have to pay for.

Is This A Good Question/Topic? 0

I've though about making my own plug-ins for visual studio a couple of times, but never really got around to doing so.

But i was surprised to see how little information is available for making plug-ins for VS

http://msdn.microsof...es/02/02/VSIDE/

Pretty much the only usefull article i've found about it. Ill keep searching though.

EDIT:

nvm.. there is a lot more information, just have to play around with the search key-words.

www.microsoft.com //search for Visual studio and add-ins and play around there is a lot of info.
