Introducing IdMso visual studio extension

A few months ago I released a visual studio extension, that provides autocomplete if you edit¬†office ribbon files. The extension is open source, and published on GitHub. By now, it proved to be more of less functional and even some issues with Office 2016 icons were fixed thanks to the user feedback! ūüôā What it can do for you – it can assist you if you edit the XML files to define¬†interface for your extensions in the Visual Studio editor. The code is based on famous glyphfriend¬†extension (if you don’t use it yet – you should start, it’s great). Initially …

New tool – Visio Import/Export VBA

Hi all, Have recently have created an extension to import/export VBA code from a Visio drawing or stencil. You can find this useful if you want to track VBA source code changes in your Visio files, like compare current version of the code with the past version. Could make sense to use together with some version control like TFS, Subversion, or GIT.

Rubberduck – refactoring in VBA

Hi all, recently came¬†across an interesting Rubberduck project.¬†Did you think that¬†VBA is dead and buried?¬†It looks like it’s not going down that¬†easily! Rubberduck is a COM Add-In for the VBA IDE that makes VBA development even more enjoyable, by extending the Visual Basic Editor (VBE) with menus, toolbars and toolwindows that enable things we didn’t even think were possible when we first started this project. If you’re learning VBA, Rubberduck can help you avoid a few common beginner mistakes, and can probably show you a trick or two – even if you’re only ever writing macros. If you’re a more …
