Setting up Visual Studio for improved productivity

Once you install Visual Studio, there are a few things which you need to do so that you are comfortable with the environment and to make your life easier.  Here’s what i like to do:

1. Show line numbers!

2.  Insert attribute value quotes when typing

This can be enabled by
Tools -> Options -> Text Editor -> HTML -> Format
turn on – “Insert attribute value quotes when typing”

3. Change the colours of delegates, Enum etc

More on that later…

4.  If you don’t want IDs of controls to be forced to be unique

Go to Tools -> Options -> Text Editor -> HTML -> Miscellaneous
turn off – “Auto ID elements on paste in source view”
