Works Great! The best work around for my coworkers who put lots of regions INSIDE of methods (smh).

The only VS extension that corrects vision

by Jake Sisko | August 22 2014

Works great in VS2010 but doesn't appear to function at all in VS2012. Region display was unaffected there.

Who ever came up with the idea of wrapping every little line of a class in #region should not be allowed on the internet again.

Love the plugin!

Thanks again for the extension, and thank you for releasing a VS2013 version, saves having to hack the manifest to install it :)

Perfect! Region abuse is rampant and obnoxious! Too bad the masses ruined a feature that when used sparingly is great.

This extension cures sick children.

Support for 2013 would rock! :)

by GrahamClark_uk | January 06 2014

This is such a great extension. A version that works with VS 2013 would be simply splendid. Thanks!

Amazing work.

You sir, are a saint. There is a special place for you in my heart. Words can hardly express how much grief and anguish you have saved me.

I - absolutely - DESPISE regions. Each time I see one I feel the visual equivalent of a kick in plums.

It's not pleasant.

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR THIS EXTENSION . . . sorry for shouting but it has changed my life, and has arguably extended the lifespans of some of my colleagues.

  • New form of evel # region (with a space)
    1 Posts | Last post March 02, 2015
    • I really love the add-on. 
      I noticed in some projects new form of evil: # region (there is a space!). Unfortunately this great tool does handle them correctly. Could you please fix this issue?
  • How to disable small #region lines?
    2 Posts | Last post January 09, 2015
    • This is a great little tool, thanks for making it! One thing that irks me, though, is that this extension causes any #region line to be rendered in a smaller font, which I find distracting. How do I turn that off? (I don't want to turn off #region coloring, which I really like -- I just don't want it to make the font smaller.)
    • Under Tools -> Options -> Disable Regions, you can turn it off.  Alternatively you can adjust the font color and size as directed in the description when you click on "Style Region Lines".
  • Can you do the same for comments

    • Hi,
      I like this tool.  Would you consider doing a similar thing for comments?
      Thanks, Phil
  • What I seek for
    1 Posts | Last post August 31, 2014
    • A possibility to order the regions alphabetically.
      A possibility to explode or implode all regions, not upon opening a file.
  • Are there any plans to update this for Visual Studio 2013?

    • Great extension!! I love using this extension!!
      My organization recently updated to Visual Studio 2013 and this extension is no longer compatible, are there any plans to update this for Visual Studio 2013?
    • Now works with 2013!
  • Regionizer

    • I am completely the opposite of you. I love Regions as they are the cure for spaghetti code.
      My product, Regionizer, available at http://regionizer.codeplex.com formats C# code files into regions for private variables, methods, events and properties.
      The events, methods and properties are all alphabetically sorted so you no matter the coding style of anyone on your team, the documents are all formatted the same way.
      I can't stand code that ins't formatted using Regionizer, so to each their own, but if you like regions, you will like Regionizer.
      The only thing I could not figure out was how to expand and collapse all regions using the DTE, if you know of a way please tell me.
      I would like you to compare my source code to yours and you tell me if you like your style better after using Regionzer.
      Download Rad Studio Code Generation Toolkit (http://radstudio.codeplex.com) to see a sample of code formatted using Regionizer.

    • The cure for spaghetti code is to refactor!  Get R# or Refactor and go to town on that large file.
    • If you have to use regions, your code is spaghetti
      Good code short and does not need regions
  • Same plugin for "this" keyword
    1 Posts | Last post January 07, 2014
    • I hate "this" keyword and some times people use it
      May be it is posible to hide it in editor
  • Visual Studio 2013 support
    3 Posts | Last post October 17, 2013
    • Hi. Please support Visual Studio 2013!
    • This will be done soon. In the meantime, you can try the suggestion below (using vs12), it worked for 2012 but haven't tried it for 2013:
      AlbertWeinert - Download the vsix file, change the manifest and add vs11, also change .net framework max to 4.5. Install over the "new" vsix. Works.
    • That worked perfectly. For lazy people, download an updated version for VS2013 here: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/3006713/DisableRegions.vsix
  • Shortcut for this feature
    2 Posts | Last post August 23, 2013
    • Hi I like your extension very much. I only miss a shortcut. When I open a class or when I have opened a lot of methods I want to organize my code again. I then hit Ctrl M + Ctrl O. The only thing that I hate then is that the regions are also closed. Can you make a shortcut that does the same thing as Ctrl M + Ctrl O but expands the regions.
    • Have you tried Ctrl M + Ctrl L? Also, in Tools -> Options -> C# -> Advanced, do you have 'Enter outlining mode when files open' checked?
  • Add support for hiding XML comments
    1 Posts | Last post August 14, 2013
    • I nearly crapped in my pants when I saw this.  Great job!  If only I could convince everyone else on my team that regions are a code smell.  If the file is so big it needs organization, then break up the functionality.  
      Now that you tackled regions, how about XML comments on functions?  I just want to see code!  Again, great extension.
