Software written just for me


Whatever your view on c# regions – love ’em or hate ’em, check out Ora, a popular Visual Studio add-in to aid code navigation written by my colleague Daniel Earwicker.

Why am I telling you this? Because in the latest version Dan added a button to delete regions to meet a requirement I raised.

I want a big button that when clicked will delete all regions in the currently opened file and optionally also the current project / solution / local machine / the world!

This is great! When I see this button I don’t think of it as the Remove Regions button, I think of it as Mike’s button. OK, I sit next to the guy – it’s not the same as emailing Microsoft with a feature request, but it does feel really good being the customer and seeing your feature requests implemented.


I’ve now experienced both sides of feature requests – implementing them, and seeing them implemented for me. Both feel good.

If you’d like to see feature X, consider raising a request. The developer will thank you for the interest, and maybe, you’ll get some software written just for you.

Anyone want to see validator X in the next version of ValidationAspects? πŸ˜‰

  1. I feel jealous.

    What is your most secret feature request for PostSharp, Mike ? πŸ˜‰


  2. 2 Mike

    That’s a tricky one. After several years using Castle.DynamicProxy 1 & 2, PostSharp does everything I’m familiar with but better (IMO).

    PostSharp for Silverlight please! I know it’s in progress – really looking forward to PostSharp 1.5 CTP3.

  3. This website was… how do you say it? Relevant!!
    Finally I’ve found something that helped me. Appreciate it!
