How to Use a Built-In Code Snippet

In this section you will see how to use a ready-made code snippet. I will assume you are currently working with an open web application in Visual Studio 2005.

Create a new ASP.NET page, and then flip to the code view so that you will be able to add a code snippet.

Click on Tools, then Code Snippet Manager; you will be faced by the following figure


I have selected the prop code snippet included inside the Visual C# package. You can also select any other code snippet belonging to Visual C# or Visual Basic.

In the location section, you can see the location of the code snippet which is the same as mentioned in one of the sections in the article. The left pane shows the Header section of the prop code snippet.

You select a code snippet and press OK. You then see the code snippets code emitted on the page where you are adding the code snippet as follows:

private int myVar;

public int MyProperty


get { return myVar;}

set { myVar = value;}


The words highlighted by green are the replicable values defined inside the Declarations section of the code-snippet. As you can see, they have taken their default values as defined. Now, the developer should either change the default values to meet his/her needs or keep them the same.
