An Often Neglected Feature: Task Lists in Visual Studio

Often in code, I would put comments like this:

// TODO: This needs a better name


which is quite normal. But I almost never took advantage of them fully by having the Task List feature turned on: Which puts a nice window at the bottom:


That will allow you a simple double click access to any comment that starts with "TODO", "HACK" or "UNDONE"

In an effort to get better at tapping the power of Visual Studio, I've added Sara Ford as a top feed in my reader.

If you like Sara Ford's site check out this one - .NET Tip of The Day.org. I think you'll like it.

programmist: Thanks for leaving a note!

I've been subscribed to the .NET Tip of The Day too for awhile now. It's not nearly as frequently updated as Sara's, but it does have some good content.
