Visual Studio 2013+: printing with syntax highlighting has moved to the “Productivity Power Tools”

Posted by jpluimers on 2016/05/04

Back in the Visual Studio 2010 days there was a request for Printing source code with syntax coloring.

Then, the Visual Studio team released an extension that did just that: Color Printing Extension Now Available! – The Visual Studio Blog – Site Home – MSDN Blogs.

It got updated for Visual Studio 2012 in the gallery Color Printing extension, but that does not mention it has moved to the Productivity Power Tools 2013 extension.

Both tools are from the Visual Studio IDE team, and mentioned on their blog.

Annoying: Visual Studio 2010+ by default open XSD files in a Designer view

Posted by jpluimers on 2016/04/14

It is pretty easy to switch from the XSD Designer to the Code view: c# – Viewing XSD as code – Stack Overflow.

 

But I got a bit fed up of doing this each and every time after opening an XSD file in Visual Studio.

It turns out there is a default for that which is a bit hidden away: in the File Open dialog. There,

right click on an XSD file, choose “Open with…” and select the appropriate option – then click on “Set as Default” before you actually open it.

Threading in C# – Free E-book

Posted by jpluimers on 2016/01/18

Still a great book. I love the chapter Threading in C# – Free E-book which you also can get as a PDF download.

It’s a chapter from C# 56/5/… in a Nutshell by Joseph Albahari. Great book!

Don’t forget to read these as well: Jon Skeet: Multi-threading in .NET: Introduction and suggestions (printable) Multi-threading in .NET: Introduction and suggestions (browseable)

c# – TFS Code Reviews – Show updated files in response to comments – Stack Overflow

Posted by jpluimers on 2015/11/10

Nice steps here: c# – TFS Code Reviews – Show updated files in response to comments – Stack Overflow.

What’s missing here is that you now loose your history within the shelve-set.

That makes it harder for the reviewer to view the changes being re-reviewed.

Visual Studio: Zoom Out when ReSharper has captured Ctrl+Shift+,

Posted by jpluimers on 2015/09/30

ReSharper has a whole set of nice keyboard shortcuts, which includes Ctrl + Shift + , for View Recent Edits.

This overwrites the Zoom Out half of the default Visual Studio zoom keyboard shortcuts (thanks Carlos Muñoz):

Ctrl + Shift + . to zoom in and Ctrl + Shift + , to zoom out.

They don’t keep an alternative for Zoom Out, and unlike most tools I know that allow for zooming, there is no keyboard accessible menu entry for Zoom Out in Visual Studio.

So you have to use your mouse to go in the lower left of your editor window in order to Zoom Out (thanks ashteele for putting that in an SO question):

Zoom percentage in the lower left of your Visual Studio editor Window

Or you can reconfigure the old shortcut (thanks Aaron Ransley):

through Tools -> Options -> Environment -> Keyboard and map “View.ZoomIn” and “View.ZoomOut
