VS should have this by default

by KayS | August 10 2014

Nice work. And surprisingly for me :-) also <!-- #region --> works fine

by Brandon C Poole | July 15 2014

Very helpful! Can't believe this isn't standard.

by Heck, Waldemar | June 04 2014

Thank you very much.

This should take over Microsoft in the next version in the standard.

This is something that is definitely missing in VS.

Magnifique !

THAT IS AWESOME! Microsoft should've done this a long ago! Now it is soooo easy to build templates storage in one file! THANK YOU so much!

  • Is this needed anymore?
    1 Posts | Last post November 17, 2015
    • I think I saw at WPF program manager's video that they now support regions in XAML at latest Visual Studio update. So is this extension not needed anymore, or does Microsoft only support it say in WPF XAML designer and not in Silverlight one, so the extension would still be handy? Has anyone more info on this?
  • VS 2015 support
    4 Posts | Last post July 29, 2015
    • VS2015 is now release candidate.  What would it take to get this working in VS2015?
    • Alright, there's an easy fix. Download the .vsix file, rename to .zip. Open the file extension.vsixmanifest in a text editor and update the data accordingly. Increase the version to something higher (I changed it to, add another SupportedProducts element for VS 14.0 Enterprise and Pro, and I've also set SupportedFrameworkRuntimeEdition MaxVersion="4.6" (not sure whether it's required). The code itself is unchanged, so I didn't bother patching the DLL file. Just tried it and it works well.
    • Confirmed in VS2015RC. Ahhh... That's so much better! You're a life saver. 
    • VS2015 support just added, sorry it took so long!
  • Source code

    • Is the source code of this extension available somewhere? The licence would allow using it, I just can't find it anywhere.
  • VS 2015

    • Will this extension support VS 2015? Currently CTP 6 is out.
  • VS restart
    2 Posts | Last post September 26, 2014
    • Although the extension installer doesn't complain when Visual Studio is open, it seems you have to close and restart it for the extension to start working (at least in a Silverlight XAML file that I tried)
      also it seems to change styling of all XML comments
    • UPDATE: ignore my comment regarding the XML comments' styling, it was "redmuffin multiadornment" extension that was restyling the comments
  • XML regions
    1 Posts | Last post September 26, 2014
    • why not support this at any XML file too? (.XML, .XSL/.XSLT, .XSD, etc.)
  • Add Region Highlights
    1 Posts | Last post September 02, 2014
    • Hi!
      Could you add highlights like "Region Highlights" http://visualstudiogallery.msdn.microsoft.com/f6c01911-3c3f-4831-8e83-ea0d5d147964 by Paul Rogero
      or like "redmuffin.MultiAdornment" http://visualstudiogallery.msdn.microsoft.com/03e958d5-66a5-4947-9d5e-334766cc5877 by michael_volz
  • Hotkey support missing?
    1 Posts | Last post July 01, 2014
    • With regular Visual Studio regions you can select them and press "Ctrl+]" (control + right square bracket) to switch the cursor location between the #region and the #endregion (just like how it works for "{" and "}", etc.).
      The extension seems to work except that it lacks this feature.
      Is it something that could be easily added?
  • Commands
    3 Posts | Last post June 13, 2014
    • Any plans to add a few related commands? It would be very useful to be able to collapse all regions or the deepest level of regions. Sadly the removal of macros from VS2012+ prevents me scripting up something!
      Essentially I'd like an easy way of resetting the file to the default open state where only your regions are collapsed. The standard collapse functionality in VS isn't much use because it doesn't differentiate and collapses everything.
    • (Or to release source? :)
    • I've just updated my free "Menees VS Tools 2013" extension (for VS 2013) to support its CollapseAllRegions and ExpandAllRegions commands when the XAML Regions extension (or the Web Essentials extension) is installed and enabled.
  • Not Supported on VS13 for Desktop Express Edition

    • Why I can't install your extension on VS13 Express Edition for Desktop?
