Moving Code Around in Visual Studio

2 minutes, 59 seconds


Right click “Save as…”

As a developer, one of the common tasks that you do is move code around. In this video, I'll demonstrate how using the Outlining Expansion feature in Visual Studio makes it a whole lot easier to copy and paste entire methods or classes. The trick is using the CTRL+M, CTRL+M shortcut key to collapse bodies of code first. Enjoy the video!

    I gave this video a thumbs down and I wanted to give an explanation.  Although the video has high production value.  I feel that it was a waste of time to watch a video on basic clipboard functionality as it relates to the collapsing and expansion of code blocks.

    With that said, the title and description are accurate.

    wow.. I usually just read the description and move on if that particular video is not for me.    I am sure this little tidbit could help somebody else out.    Everything on Channel 9 is not tailored to you specficially.

    When presented with this tool, the thumbs up (Awsome) or the thumbs down (Meh), I feel obligated to use it.  The opinions that I express are my own and represent 33% of the thumb tally thus far.  Perhaps my input could be used to alter the trajectory of future screencasts.

    Everyone has the right to vote.  And, if everyone did, the content would closer match the needs of the community.

    I saw this the other day but did not comment. I used to be big on keyboard actions/shortcuts etc but that has fallen away and I was so very happy to see this video. Although I knew that large regions could be treated this way, I hadn't know this worked for just one method. Excellent post, thanks. I was just wondering if there are any more like this!!

  • Good video.   I don't need to learn something huge and mind shattering all the time.   Thumbs up.

  • Can you add a tag like "basic"?  I am a huge keyboard shortcut fan and spent 3 minutes to see nothing special...
