Code storage tool for any language but
developed using Visual Basic .NET 2005. Includes syntax coloring for VB
code and can load via the tools menu external option in Visual Studio
**Note: This version utilizes SQL server for the database backend. I am almost finished with an Access backend version as well and will upload that once it is completed.
Please note this tool utilizes a few snips from other freely available source code routines, namely the syntax colorizing. Comments and author information are retained in the source code.
Using the program
The program runs on its own so it can be used for any language whether VB, J#, C++, SQL or whatever. Additionally, if used with Visual Studio 2005, you can add it to the tools menu via the 'External Tools' option and load it directly from Visual Studio's IDE.
There are two (2) versions of this program. This version is the SQL Server version. You MUST have SQL server or SQL Server Express installed for this to operate. Currently you will need to use the DataSet in the project code to reproduce the table in your SQL Server. I am still learning how to create a version that includes the ability to add the SQL server DB to an install. But for now you will need to create it yourself. It is not large, only 6 or 7 fields including one Primary Key and Index field.
I am finishing up the Access DB version of this code and will post that soon as well.
The program appears to be pretty stable and I have seen no major problems running it. It is a work in progress as I intend on continuing to enhance this package... especially since I use it myself extensively.
Please feel free to send me comments and suggestions for the software. I look forward to hearing from you on some new ideas to incorporate into the package.
- Can store code from any language.
- Currently handles color syntax highlighting for VB6 and VB.Net source code.
- Can be added to the Visual Studio 2005 tools toolbar via the external tools option.
- This version utilizes SQL Server as the back end. Access version coming soon.
This is my very first VB.Net application of any kind so any input or suggestions are greatly appreciated!
