Release Notes


A Visual Studio Add-in for C# Code Formatting - Visual Studio 2008

  • A UI for options, Enable or disable any specific task you want to.
  • A decent list of formatting tasks.
  • The ability to call other formatting-related addins after completion of a task - currently StyleCop and GhostDoc

It installs off a single MSI which does all the work. Simply install it and it will add the appropriate commands to the "Tools" menu (May need to restart Visual Studio).

Please keep in mind this is an ALPHA. While I have run it on larger projects without any problems, I make no guarantees. I appreciate any testing you can do - especially over large codebases, but please be smart about it. Also keep in mind that running stylecop saves your files.

The only time I've ever seen broken code with my testing has been with preprocessor directives on sorting elements within classes. #region and #endregion break this functionality. I currently have a warning before it runs that allows you to skip that task on that file. It will display the error if you're using any preprocessor directives whatsoever, however if the directives are inside a function, constructor, property, or outside of any class it will not break. This problem only affects directives at the class level.

This addin is only for Visual Studio 2008 on C# projects and requires .NET 3.5.


* Sorting elements within classes also sorts interfaces and structs.
* Sorting elements within class/interface/struct doesn't sort if it doesn't need to.
* Moving Usings no longer inserts a new line to start inserting usings if there's no usings to insert.
