Top 12 Visual Studio short cuts – Productivity Tips

Visual Studio is very Rich IDE and it provides in-numerous features that makes our day to day life easy. There are some very useful hot keys and tips which can increase our productivity significantly. Earlier I used few hot keys but recently I learned few which I found awesome which drastically reduce my time while writing/debugging/reviewing the code. So learn these and make a habit of these keys and feel super charged while writing code.

  1. While code review I find many time scattered and unaligned code which I hate. I use CTRL+K+D for aligning it.
  2. While debugging or testing the code, commenting/commenting codes are done a lot. Use CTRL+K+C/CTRL+K+U for the same.
  3. How do you up/down certain line of code. Select the code block and use ALT+up/down
  4. You have a used a lot F12 to go to Definition of class. Use CTRL – to go back.
  5. How do you resolve the classes by mouse click. Use CTRL+. to resolve it quickly.
  6. Refactoring is very important. Use CTRL+R+M for extracting a method.
  7. Find All References -> Use Shift + F12. Very helpful while debugging and fixing bugs.
  8. Want to put few lines of code in try block. Try Ctrl + K + S, it provides lot more options
  9. Ever tried selecting a rectangle code. Use ALT click drag.
  10. Lots of code in a single file. Use  CTRL + M + O and CTRL + M + X in collapse/expand code groups like regions, methods etc.
  11. Lots of code and there are no groups. Use CTRL+M+H/CTRL+M+U
  12. Another super sweet. ALT+F4 to close the window.

Try using the above in your day to day coding and be more productive.

IIS uses CLR thread pool to get a thread that processes a request that comes to the application. Say, if there are currently twenty threads available in pool, it means only twenty request can be served in parallel and if request processing takes some time then it could turn into disaster if hundred odd request are bombarded in few milliseconds.

In this series post, we are going to discuss some of the most unused or ignored tricks which can be easily applied to any web application.

  1. Kernel mode cache – It is one of the primary tools widely used for writing making web application faster. But most of the times, we don’t use it optimally and just leave some major benefits. As each asp.net request goes through various stages, we can implement caching at various level as belowcachingoppWe can see that request is first received by http.sys so if it is cached at kernel level, then we can save most of the time spent on server as http.sys is a http listener which sits in OS kernel…Read complete post on Infragistics blog
