The focus of these blogs (.NETWeblogs) is of course on
.NET. When you have a second, why not share/demo some piece of code you use
often or an approach to a common problem you have solved?
Code is great. But often it's tied to one particular problem. I have found
that whenever I see a question on CodeProject or via
one of my MSN contacts that I don't know the answer to, I don't go looking for a
code snippet to help me out. Rather, I turn to one of my many utilities that I
love. So I thought I'd share a couple with everybody:
- Reflector - This is
by far the most useful tool in the .NET world. A great object browser that far
surpasses anything that the VS.NET object browser has to offer.
- Documentor - More
by Lutz Roeder, a very nifty tool for working with XML documentation in C#.
Powertools - While not necessarily a programming utility, I do find
jv16 Powertools to be very useful. The file and registry tools are just
- Syndirella - I love
Syndirella. 'Nuff said.
Sizer - This app is awesome. Because I run at 1400x1050 screen
resolution, often the ASP.NET pages that I make are too big for people with
normal resolutions to see...
Inspector - A must have for any Windows Forms developer. This
app lets you inspect when controls are fired on forms. Very nice. It's kind of
like Spy++ for .NET, but there's a "test" surface that you can add controls to
in order to just perform an ad hoc test of when the event gets fired.
I agree, but you can't leave Anakrino (FREE) out. It is
the single most powerful .NET learning tool available.
