I'm just a beginner in programming stuff. Every time I need a specific collection, I have to write an entire class (it is always the same), and I'm a little tired of that, so I wrote a Visual Studio Add-In that does the work for me.
My add-in is very simple, you select a project, then go to Tools/TypedCollection.
It displays a window that prompts you for the data type and the collection name.
Press OK, and you are done. It will create a new class with your collection which inherits from
CollectionBase which guarantees you have all its functionality, plus the advantages of being strongly typed.
How to build it
Just download the source files, unzip it, and open the TypedCollection solution. Then build both projects (TypedCollection and TypedCollectionSetup). Once you've done that, run setup.exe from bin directory.
