Description

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;

SAMPLES: How to create top menus, sub menus, context menus, toolbars

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:

visualstudioextensibility/VSX-Samples

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
