Today I finally got fed up with writing all those repeated properties for XML serialization and data binding. I decided that I couldn’t wait for code expansions in Whidbey:
.NET is a Visual Studio add-in that allows you to type short
prop int test and press Alt+Q to expand
this into a getter/setter property. It is completely configurable
so that you can modify the built-in expansions to your coding style
and create new snippets as you like.
It is only US$29 and with today’s exchange rate that makes it pretty darned cheap in my book.
