Hello everyone, I just saw the VC# 2005 Express Edition and the Code Snippets. They insert some choosen parts of code by typing the shortcut name of the snippet and pressing Tab. I am very fascinated, 'coz that can simplify programming a lot. So I tried to find out how to use those with VC++ 2005 Express, but Im afraid I found nothing, although VC++ 2005 _has_ a code snippet manager. Do u know, if there's a way to use code snippets with VC++ 2005? I will be glad if so, thx in andvance

I'm affraid I will answer somthing different than what you expected, but are you talking about pressing CTRL + SPACE (auto completion) ?
If you aint, just nevermind what I just said :p

You might want to ask on the microsoft forums, but I expect this, like most of the other macro support and plugins, is missing in the express editions.

Ok, thank you

I have a simple reason for this: I describe every class method as follows:
    #pragma region Constructor    /// <summary>    /// Here we create all things we need during the game    /// </summary>    CPlayer()    {         // some commands...    }    #pragma endregion // Game's starting, prepare things we are going to need

in my IDE these XML Tags are highlighted and coloured. The thought I got was to insert that "/// <summary>..." with a shortcut key, so I had the idea that I could use Code Snippets. Is there any other way to do so? ( Copy'n'Past excepted )
