Here's my requirement:

Upon typing a predetermined character, say '
a comment should be auto appended [for change logging] on that line:

Like

' CHANGE MADE BY XYZ ON 11/NOV/2011 | AAAAAA BB CCCC DD EEEE FFFFFF

Is this possible? Are there good resources for writing such extensions for VS2010?

One more good to have requirement: If the developer does not write a custom comment ("AAAAAA BB CCCC DD EEEE FFFFFF") for the change he made, he should be prompted till he does so.


Thanks In Advance

Plugins are usually written in C#. Added that as a tag so there is more chance of someone who knows what they are doing might see it.
I did write 1 a while back, that was somewhat similar to this, but the code must be on my backup drive. If no one has replied in a few hours I will dig that up.

I'm not looking for 3rd party add-ins. I'm looking for building a custom extension suiting my specific requirements.
