2.8 Conclusion

Visual Studio .NET provides basic text editing facilities that are shared by all of the languages in the IDE. It can also provide advanced facilities, such as IntelliSense and automatic formatting when appropriate. Certain specific file types also have their own editors, such as the WYSIWYG HTML editor. Furthermore, certain types of source files can be viewed through the editor or through a design view, such as the Windows Forms designer.

So now that we have looked at all of the facilities required to write codesolutions, projects, and file editorsthe next step will be to find the inevitable bugs in our code. So in the next chapter we will focus on the debugging features of Visual Studio .NET.
