Hello. I am fairly new to coding and I want to make sure that any effort we put into our code can be easily referenced in the future for other products. We use Visual Studio .NET.
I saw a demo of a proprietary software which appeared to be created in VB and the user had the option to click on a menu tree to the left. He would then select the code title and the code snippet would appear at the bottom right of the screen you could then
visually see what the code would provide in the upper right of the screen. For instance, if it was code for a combo box or data grid, then you would be able to visually see the end result. Does anyone know if there is something that is relatively inexpensive
out on the market or maybe a website which could help us with creating our own. Any help is greatly appreciated. [*-)]

This is builtin to Visual Studio 2003. From
Store Commonly Used Code Snippets in the Toolbox
This tip comes in from Korby Parnell:
One of my favorite VS.NET productivity tricks is to store code snippets as toolbox items. Arguably, this trick is better for comments than code since you can't reference them. To add text to the Toolbox, highlight it in the code editor, drag it
over to your toolbox, and drop it when the tooltip changes from the no smoking sign into rectangle. Thereafter, you can simply drag and drop the snippet to your editor for reuse.
