I’ve been trying out the Visual Studio 2010 beta for a week now and I love it. One of my favorite features is the boxmarking which VS now allows. This is nothing new but is incredibly useful when editing code.
In my sideproject, the Imageboard-Viewer, I wanted to apply a Style template to a list of ComboBoxItems. In Visual Studio 2008, I’d been forced to copy paste the text and change rows a million times (there are more items than visible here, although maybe not a million) .
I also got a chance to use boxmarking when copying multiple values. I wanted to set the content of the ComboBoxItems according to names. As is visible in the above picture, I had several different values to copy.
Now I just write the word Content and paste my names
