Smart string pasting with SmartPaster

Sign in to queue


Today's Visual Studio Extension is one of those simple extensions that will save you  a second here, a second there that in the end, adds up to real time savings.

I don't know about you, but I paste different strings into my apps all the time. I paste them into the code window and then start wrapping it in quotes, etc. etc. This extension will make that process that much easier and quicker...

SmartPaster 2013/2015

A port of Alex Papadimoulis' Smart Paster for Visual Studio 2013 and 2015. (via SmartPaster 2010 for Visual Studio 2010 and 2012:

A "Paste As" right-click option that allows clipboard text to be:

  • Paste as Comment
  • Paste as Literal String (regular string literal)
  • Paste as @String (in C#, verbatim string; in VB, CData or VB14 multi-line strings depending on version)
  • Paste as StringBuilder

On Visual Studio Gallery:

v1.1 adds Unicode, VS2015 support, both regular and verbatim strings.


The cloned Solution built the first time and even contains unit tests... :)
