What a great extension! I've always disliked having to dig through xaml files to find the controls I'm looking for. Now, it's so simple to organize my .xaml files for easy maintenance. Thanks Jacob, great job!
Sorry! My previous post was wrong!
Works all fine!
- I disabled the extension
- reboot the VS
- enable the extension
- reboot VS
after these operations the extension works correctly
Thank you very much for this extensions, it's very useful !! :)
I have one question : This is possible to add a button to 'expand/collapse' all of the regions, please ? It would be very useful !!
Nope - that should not be the case! I updated it in March to work with 2012, and have been running it with the RTM 2012 for a few weeks now on my system. All work just fine.
That said, it is possible for other plugins to interfere with my plugin. One reviewer said that Visual Studio Commands does this. Try running with your other 3rd-party Extensions disabled and see if that changes anything. If that doesn't work, you may try sending me a test file where the regioning isn't working for you, I might be able to debug it!
Jacob, awesome plugin, thanks for taking the time to create it. I'd like to make one suggestion if possible: is there any way to extend this to work with config files? Some of our App.config files get pretty large, and this seems like the perfect solution. I think this would just be another awesome addition to an already great tool.
Jacob, thanks so much. I just finished adding regions to our application's App.config, and it looks great. I've told all of my team members about your tool, and so far, it's a big hit. I appreciate the quick turnaround. Great Job!!
great job with that plugin!
sometimes i comment some XAML, can you make it work with comments?
<Trigger Property="IsExpanded" Value="true">
<Setter Property="Visibility" TargetName="ExpandSite" Value="Visible"/>
In the screenshot (http://visualstudiogallery.msdn.microsoft.com/3c534623-bb05-417f-afc0-c9e26bf0e177/image/file/46781/2/screenshot.png), I see vertical lines between opening and ending tags. Is that feature a part of "XMAL Regions" or some other extension? If it's a part of XMAL Regions, how do I enable it?
Oops - I didn't mean to include that! That's not from my plugin. It's actually created by the DevExpress CodeRush plugin (http://devexpress.com/Products/Visual_Studio_Add-in/Coding_Assistance/). I meant to disable that before taking screenshots. CodeRush is very nice, especially in Visual Studio 2010. Unfortunately, it's not a free plugin.
I'd like to. It was giving me a compiler warning about Express Editions being incompatible with something I did. At the time, I didn't have a virtual machine set up with Express Editions to test it out, so I disabled Express support. I'll stop being lazy and see if I can get it working with Express ;-) Give me a few days to get that done.
I looked into this some more. Turns out that the Express Editions of Visual Studio do not allow MEF (Managed Extensibility Framework) components that extend the editor, only project templates and toolbox controls. Since this extension uses the MEF and falls under the category of things that extend the editor, Visual Studio Express won't allow it to be installed :-(
