This extension descends from god.

FINALLY! I can ignore #regions and not have to re-expand every file I open in VS. Thank you.

Oh my, you may have saved me from a code style showdown at my new job. I've learned to loathe #Regions.

Now I can leave these in place and hopefully not tick off anyone else who may like these vile things.

i hate regions!

Not the plugin that we need but the plugin we deserve right now.
10/10 would install again!

Thank you for this plugin! I haven't used it yet, but I sure do hate the default region-folding behavior of visual studio.

I LOVE this. I hate regions with a vengeance.

I love it!!!

Thank you so much for your great add-on.

In my company I have to use regions for each property, method, etc.
So you made my life much more easy!! (-:

  • 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
    • You're just adding a layer of tomato sauce on top of you spaghetti
  • Include support for ///summary blocks?
    1 Posts | Last post August 03, 2015
    • Besides hating regions, I hate summary blocks too! We're about to begin documenting code now and want to include XML documentation. Since we're also highly reliant on "collapse-to-definitions" for a quick class overview, sorted by scope, I really don't like to see any additional lines in between for instance, grouped methods. Is it possible to include support for these in the future as well? Preferrably, like hide the collapsed line completely or make them so small they don't add significant space in between collapsed methods and properties and so on? That would this addon even more perfect ;)
  • New form of evel # region (with a space)
    3 Posts | Last post July 23, 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?
    • Oh that is dirty!! Will definitely fix with the VS2015 update.
    • This is fixed!! Now the region lovers will have to find other ways to annoy you.
  • Collapse only empty regions
    2 Posts | Last post July 23, 2015
    • Great addon! I do hate regions...
      I would love an extra option that would automatically collapse only empty (only whitespace) regions.
    • Sorry, we open all regions, all the time!
  • Visual Studio 2015

    • Any plans to make compatible with Visual Studio 2015? I'm currently running the RC and I miss this extension!
    • Yep, will try to get to that soon. It's always a battle keeping up with these, I thought the latest version was marked for any VS version but I guess not...
      In the meantime, this has worked for past versions so it might get you buy for a bit:
      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.
      (the vsix I think is just a .zip file)
    • Thanks for the tip - installed no problem after adding the following to the manifest:
        <VisualStudio Version="14.0">
  • 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
    1 Posts | Last post October 31, 2014
    • 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?
    2 Posts | Last post June 02, 2014
    • 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!
  • 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
