StyleManager's Key Features
Visual Style Editor
StyleManager's easy-to-use visual style editor lets you configure your own formatting rules using
only simple mouse clicks. You're given intricate control over more than 70 different configurable
- Brace placement
- Preprocessor commands
- Pointers and references
- Bracket spacing and position
- Member alignment
- and many more
What's more, StyleManager plugs straight into the Visual Studio .NET
2003 / 2005 / 2008 / 2010 development environment - making restyling your files a simple click in your IDE.
The powerful style previewer allows you to see how your rules
affect YOUR code, in real-time as you edit your style. It's so simple and easy to configure your
style, you'll have your code reformatted in practically no time.
Direct IDE Integration
StyleManager uses Visual Studio .NET files, projects and settings directly: There's no need for
you to set up any special project settings or switch to another application; just choose your
style from the integrated Style Chooser, and you're ready to go.
Restyling a file with StyleManager really couldn't be simpler. The restyle operation happens
'in place' within the Visual Studio .NET editor, almost as if you'd restyled the file by hand.
Just like any other source code change you might perform yourself, the change appears in the Undo
This makes it possible to preview the change and even compare the 'before' and 'after' effects of
applying your style. It happens exactly as if you'd restyled the file manually, but saves you the
time and effort of having to do so.
StyleManager helps you reformat whole projects at a time. Need to update a large body of legacy
code? StyleManager uses Visual Studio .NET projects directly: Just select the project within the
Solution Explorer and tell StyleManager to restyle it; the whole project will be updated in one go.
With project-level restyles you also get control over how StyleManager should backup your existing
files. You can elect to use the Undo buffer just like single-file restyle operations, or you can
have StyleManager copy the original files for safety. Of course, if you're using a source control
system you can tell StyleManager that you already have backup support.
