Visual Studio Toolbox: Building Extensions with CodeRush

39 minutes, 41 seconds


Right click “Save as…”

This week, Robert invites Mark Miller and Rory Becker from DevExpress onto the show. They demonstrate how you can use CodeRush to build a plug-in that will enforce naming conventions for classes, methods, and other members in a Visual Studio solution. Mark is in the studio and does all the programming while Rory calls in and offers commentary.

Check out Robert's blog to see how to download and run this plug-in.

    Great stuff. I am always exhausted after a presentation by Mr. Miller!

  • CodeRush works for C++, there is even a free version


    You could probably also build this CodeRush plugin completely in C++, if you really must use the _standard_ language real developer<sic> use.

  • Ah sorry for the non sequitur, let me fix that.

    /The commercial version of/ CodeRush works for C++.   There is even a free version /of Refactor/ for C++ http://devexpress.com/Products/Visual_Studio_Add-in/RefactorCPP/

    CodeRush and Refactor are just different services on the core IDE technology (and if you buy the commercial version it comes with both services).  Refactor makes code changes without changing behaviour, CodeRush is everything else (Templates, Navigation, etc).  the core IDE technology also parses C#, VB and C++ into language independent structures - so that plugin they built in C# that dealt with the names of identifiers could probably run on your C++ code.

    Anyway these days most Windows developers are no longer using C++, not because they lack the ability but because there are more efficient alternatives.  You can't blame Microsoft for focusing their effort where most developers actually are.  

    At least they have built a pretty decent C++ Compiler and IDE for those who can't make the move to managed code.  It could be worse <cough>Foxpro</cough>
