Visual Studio formetting shortcut key conbinations

An old favourite of mine but well worth knowing.

These are simple key strokes to make your day to day programming run smoother, well at least thats what I tell myself.

The one the I use all the time is CTRL + K followed by CTRL + D. This set of key strokes works in code view and html view and it simply tidies your code up by putting in sensible line breaks and tabbing nested content. Now if you are a tidy programmer you will probably not need this but if you are picking up someoneelses code then it helps you save a lot of time.

There are of course other shortcut keys that are usefull and 10 of these can be found on Dev 102 website. Many more exist and a full list will be out there somewhere but right now I am happy with the ones that I know about.

Bish, bash, bosh. Score
