Dividing Lines Between Member Groups (+1 VB.Net)

VB.Net’s editor has a nice feature that makes it easy to scroll up and down, looking for a method or property. VB.Net will insert a single pixel line between each property, method, and group of fields.

My guess is that C# doesn’t do this because of the more relaxed formatted. However, this isn’t too large an obstacle. With everything else that the C# editor is missing, I’m am guessing that it just didn’t seem important enough.

    I wish that they had dividing lines in c#…

    There is now a DXCore (The framework behind Coderush and REfactorPro) plugin called CR_DrawLinesBetweenMethods which sounds like it does what you want.

    The VB editor is IMO the one that’s missing more stuff, like refactoring, proper goto definition support, code-completion, C# editor kind of knows what you’re going to type next compared to VB’s, for example when adding an event handler C# knows which eventHandler delegate you need so after typing += next to the multicast delegate you can just press tab and it completes the line for you, same thing happens when typing new next to a variable declaration, etc. etc.

    I would give this a +1 for c#. I dislike the lines in vb. I write and maintain code in both languages and the lines make the vb files seem cluttered.
