Carlos Quintero, Mr. Visual Studio Extension himself, is back with a great set of samples and how-to's on how you can add menus and toolbars to your next VS extension
Here's some of the other times we've highlighted his work;
- Help Creating High-DPI Friendly VS Extensions
- Building DPI Aware Visual Studio Extensions
- VS Extensibility Samples, Extension Extension and more...
The questions of how to create a toolbar, a top menu, a sub menu, an entry on a context menu, etc. appear from time to time on the forums, so I have created a bunch of samples on GitHub:
They use what I consider best practice: the use of the CommandPlacements section in the .vsct file for centralized place to set parent-child relationships.
The code samples are the following:
HOWTO: Create a Visual Studio toolbar
Demonstrates how to create a toolbar.
HOWTO: Create a Visual Studio top menu
Demonstrates how to create a top menu.
Looking at the repo gives a good view of all of them...
