Mark Miller on Intelligent Code Generation in Visual Studio

Mark Miller is in the house! Mr. Clean shows us how to create intelligent code generators for Visual Studio using CodeRush or CodeRush Xpress.
Notes from the show: To reveal the DevExpress menu in products that ship with it hidden (such as CodeRush Xpress), start the Registry editor, add the "HideMenu" DWORD to the "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Developer Express\CodeRush for VS\{DXCoreVersionGoesHere}" registry key, and set its Value to 0.
Important - if you are using DXCore or CodeRush version earlier than 9.27, you will need the extension methods in the attached source code sample.

Mark Miller Mark has been developing software since the early 1980s. He spent the 12 years preceeding 2004 coding developer tools, which are his -- figuring out how to make developers more efficient. He was awarded the "Spirit of Delphi" by Borland. He created CodeRush for Delphi in 1997, and it has won numerous reader's choice awards. He also created reAct, a component test program generator; and the CDK (Component Developer Kit) for Delphi. He created XL8, a translation software package, and created the motion control system for the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles stage show. What can we say, he's a developer's developer.
