Writing ones own generator?

Feb 13, 2013 at 10:41 PM
Hi,
Are the principles set out in "StepByStepCreateATemplate" still valid for version 5?

If a custom generator DLL is put in
C:\Users\<user>\AppData\Local\Microsoft\VisualStudio\11.0\Extensions\wwujr2fp.i34
Will it be detected ok in the selection dialog?

I assume wwujr2fp.i34 is a randomly created Dir, so one would need to find the right one.

Correct?

The sample should be pretty much right. You can also look at one of the main templates that we use. The DataTransfer template is simple. You really just need a project generator and any number of item generators. This project shows how to build one easily.
