If you’re starting to work with Visual Studio 2010 Beta 2 (and you should be, particularly if you’re doing WPF or Silverlight, Karl Shifflett has posted a new XAML PowerToys for the Cider designer in Visual Studio 2010 Beta 2.

The release includes a Grid Layout tool, as well as new menu options that provide some neat tweaks for inserting controls in a grid cell and having the width modified to fit the current width of the column, as well as additional alignment tweaks.

There’s a short (13min) video linked in the post that shows the PowerToys in action.
