Visual Studio Summer Of Extensions Competition

Post icon  Posted 27 May 2010 - 09:18 AM

http://www.readwrite...competition.php

ReadWriteWeb and Microsoft have partnered for the Visual Studio Summer of Extensions Competition.

I'd like to offer a bounty, and encourage you to submit an extension that let's Visual Studio users highlight a section of code, an error, etc. and have it automatically take you to Dream.In.Code to create a new topic, with the code wrapped in [ code ] tags.

You'll notice the New Topic pages have unique URLSs here: http://www.dreaminco...o=new_post&f=83

Notice the f=83 (for the Industry News forum).

And the fields have unique names in the DOM that you should be able to use javascript to pre-populate.

Questions? Other ideas? Please share!!!

Is This A Good Question/Topic? 0

I'd like to give this a shot but I'm wondering... I think extensions only works in the complete Visual Studio and not in the express editions?
