Code Snippets for Windows Store Apps

In partnership with the Visual Studio team, we are launching Code Snippets for Windows Store apps, a collection of around 60 IntelliSense Code Snippets for common Windows Store app programming tasks. The snippets are available for Visual Basic, C#, C++, and JavaScript developers.

For example, if you don’t know how to copy a file in JavaScript or C++, just right-click, select Insert Snippet, select the code snippet, and it will automatically add the code to your Windows app as shown in the screenshots below.

Please see the following pages to learn how to install the snippets and how to use them.



After installing, right-click and select Insert Snippet...and select the snippet from the list. Then press Tab to jump between fields.






Give them a try and let us know what you think!
