AxTools VS10x Comments Extender v1.44
VS10x Comments Extender is a Visual Studio 2013/2012/2010 extension built with the goal of making code commenting more useful from both a documenting and a productivity standpoint. By using a simple comment prefix system, you can change the default formatting of a comment by affecting its foreground color, font size and style. It works with C#, VB, C++, F# and markup language (HTML, ASPX, XML, XAML) documents.
Let's start with a brief example of what VS10x Comments Extender can help you achieve:
How does it work? Well, when you start a comment with // (C#, C++, F#) or ' (VB), you can add some extra characters (minimum one, maximum three) in order to define how this comment will look like. VS10x Comments Extender will interpret these prefixes and format the comment accordingly. Here are the possible combinations:
|In C#, C++, F#||In VB||In Markup||Meaning||Formatting (customizable)|
|//+||'+||<--+||Large size||Normal text color, large size|
|//++||'++||<--++||Extra large size||Normal text color, extra large size|
|//-||'-||<---||Small size||Normal text color, small size|
|//--||'--||<----||Extra small size||Normal text color, extra small size|
|//!||'!||<--!||Important comment||Red text color|
|//!+||'!+||<--!+||Important comment, large||Red text color, large size|
|//!++||'!++||<--!++||Important comment, extra large||Red text color, extra large size|
|//?||'?||<--?||Question||Magenta text color|
|//?+||'?+||<--?+||Question, large||Magenta text color, large size|
|//?++||'?++||<--?++||Question, extra large||Magenta text color, extra large size|
|//x||'x||<--x||Removed code||Light gray color, strikethrough|
Also, you can format task comments (TODO, HACK, UNDONE) in terms of foreground color.
Let's have a look at two comment styles (i.e. "removed code" and "important") - notice the strikethrough font style and grayed-out color used to visually isolate removed code, and the red color used to emphasize an important comment:
Additionally, a "question" style is available (actually, you can use any different meaning according to your needs) that stands out by using a magenta foreground color:
And this obviously is not all of it. You can affect the size - currently, two large sizes (large and extra large) are implemented; see the below "Column" comment text in extra large size:
