This article is an example of some useful codesmith templates that explains how they work. Brian illustrates CodeSmith at a more practical level, while getting some real-world examples as well. After a short introduction, he deeply examines the required steps to generate Web Control and Configuration Section Properties.

In two previous articles, I wrote an introduction for CodeSmith that illustrated how to setup a template, along with another article using the SchemaExplorer assembly.  For the last article in the series, I want to display a couple of useful templates that may help you when you develop your own custom templates, or at least understand more about CodeSmith in general.

You probably know of something that you type over and over again, and even though there are similarities with other pieces of code you write, it is not quite the same. Coding it fresh is usually the best option.  Because of this, added time to development cycles occurs.

Enter CodeSmith tools. This suite of tools generates code for you the way that you want it to appear; all that is required is to write the template (it does not have templates that generate templates, that would be chaos).  Let us look at some examples.
