This project hosts several extensions for the new managed WPF-based code editor found in Visual Studio 2010 which should help you understand how to create your own editor extensions.

Even if you're not into writing Visual Studio extensions you should try them as they may be very handy, like the Regex Editor.

HOW TO INSTALL: You can quickly install them by going to Tools->Extensions Manager->Online Gallery or by downloading them from the Visual Studio Gallery

Got a cool idea for a new sample? Let us know!

Available samples:

Regex Editor | Write and Test your regular expressions right within the editor

Image Insertion | Images and text nicely playing side-by-side in the new editor

IntelliSense Presenter | Create your own UI for displaying the IntelliSense

Please Note: Visual Studio 2010 is currently (05/20/09) in beta1, so the APIs used by these samples are not final at all and may change in the future. Also, some of the code in the samples that is not currently using new managed APIs will probably change in the future when/if new APIs become available.

The team: Catherine Crim (Microsoft), Selma Ikiz (Microsoft), Victor Garcia Aprea (Clarius Consulting), Adrian Alonso (Clarius Consulting) and Joaquin Jares (Clarius Consulting).

The cool graphics used in the samples were contributed by deskfolio.com
