Momentum Webcast: Do-It-Yourself Tools Inside Visual Studio (Level 100)

The Microsoft Visual Studio development system includes a great set of built-in development tools. But if Visual Studio does not have exactly the tool you need, you can always build one yourself. Join this webcast as we demonstrate how you can build customized tools inside Visual Studio to maximize its capabilities. We walk through the process of developing a package written in managed code using an example written in Microsoft Visual C#. The managed package we use as our example is from the open-source project XPathmania, which was the winner of the Microsoft Visual Studio Extensibility Plug-in contest in the managed package category. XPathmania extends Visual Studio XML Editor by adding support to test your XPath queries against the open XML document. Attend this session to learn how to begin creating your own development tools.
