QuickCode.NET 2010

New to QuickCode.NET? Start here!

QuickCode.NET has been revamped!

The successor to QuickCode 2008 now works in Visual Studio 2005, 2008, 2010, and (with instructions) 2012 and 2013, has a new setup procedure, and a new user interface. In all other respects it's completely compatible with QuickCode.NET 2005. But perhaps the most striking change: QuickCode.NET 2010 is now free. No strings attached. Guaranteed.

What's new?

  • A completely new user interface
  • A new installation procedure that supports Windows Vista
  • Support for Visual Studio 2010 and 2012 (with continued support for VS 2008 and 2005)
  • Improved ease of use: QuickCodes are now expanded when the Tab key is pressed
  • 'Create QuickCode from selection...', which puts the selected text in a replacement for the current language

What's been dropped?

  • Support for Visual Studio 2002 and 2003
  • The QuickCode Forum (which wasn't being used a lot, anyway)
  • The ability to import QuickCodes (since the main source of imports was the QuickCode Forum)

What's still there?

  • Good old QuickCode, compatible with the previous QuickCode format, allowing you to simply upgrade and keep your QuickCodes
