Welcome to the first release of the CodePlex.Snippets library of code snippets for the Visual C# developer. Included within this release are 50 code snippets including many that are based upon those that the Visual C# team provides within Visual Studio and there are also 13 completely new code snippets. See the CodePlex.Snippets.xlsx spreadsheet for details about the snippets contained within this release.
Several of the snippets within the library, namely the sim, svm, try, and try code snippets, use the CodePlex.Diagnostics
framework to publish exceptions and if you choose not to use this framework then you should edit these snippets to remove this dependency before using them.
To install the code snippets simply copy them to the following folder where 1033 indicates US English and so if you are using a non-US English version the folder will be slightly different. It is recommended that you make a backup of the content of this folder before installing the modified code snippets.
