vsGoogleI got fed up of cut'n'pasting between Visual Studio and a browser to do searches, so here's a little Visual Studio Add-In that adds search functions for my top searchs
- Google Web
- Google Newsgroups
- ATL Mailing list
- DCOM Mailing list
- SOAP Mailing list
- DOTNET Mailing list
- Microsoft Website [via Google]
InstallDownload vsGoogle and drop vsGoogle.dll into your MSDev98\AddIns directory, and register it with regsvr32. Fire up Visual Studio, goto Tools -> Customize -> Add-Ins and Macro files, and check Google Search.
Following a suggestion from Tim Tabor, I added the option to search the MSDN website, thanks Tim !.
Dec 8 2001, Sofus Mortensen suggested that the MSDN search should include the support site [which is tricky on Google], so now the last button searches the whole microsoft.com domain.
If you have an older version installed and you want to upgrade you'll need to uncheck it from the Add-Ins page, and re-select it to get the extra button to show up.
This probably won't work with VS.NET, however Drew Marsh posted a VS.NET Macro to the ATL mailing list that does something similar.
