Transform a variable into a Property

Thanks to Visual Studio.NET macros, it is quite simple to automate the task of transforming a Public field into a Property with the same name that accesses a private field of the same type.

Press Alt-F11 (or invoke the Macro IDE from the Tools|Macros submenu, select one macro module in the left-most treeview, and double-click on it to bring up the corresponding code module. Now cut and paste the following procedure:


Sub MorphVariableIntoProperty()
    DTE.ActiveDocument.Selection.StartOfLine _
        (vsStartOfLineOptions.vsStartOfLineOptionsFirstText)
    DTE.ActiveDocument.Selection.WordRight(True)
    DTE.ActiveDocument.Selection.Delete()
    DTE.ActiveDocument.Selection.Text = "Private m_"
    DTE.ActiveDocument.Selection.EndOfLine(True)
    DTE.ActiveDocument.Selection.Copy()
    DTE.ActiveDocument.Selection.EndOfLine()
    DTE.ActiveDocument.Selection.NewLine(2)
    DTE.ActiveDocument.Selection.Text = "Public Property "
    DTE.ActiveDocument.Selection.Paste()
    DTE.ActiveDocument.Selection.NewLine()
    DTE.ActiveDocument.Selection.LineUp(False, 2)
    DTE.ActiveDocument.Selection.StartOfLine _
        (vsStartOfLineOptions.vsStartOfLineOptionsFirstText)
    DTE.ActiveDocument.Selection.WordRight(False, 2)
    DTE.ActiveDocument.Selection.WordRight(True)
    DTE.ActiveDocument.Selection.Copy()
    DTE.ActiveDocument.Selection.LineDown(False, 2)
    DTE.ActiveDocument.Selection.Indent(2)
    DTE.ActiveDocument.Selection.Text = "Return m_"
    DTE.ActiveDocument.Selection.Paste()
    DTE.ActiveDocument.Selection.LineDown(False, 3)
    DTE.ActiveDocument.Selection.Indent(2)
    DTE.ActiveDocument.Selection.Text = "m_"
    DTE.ActiveDocument.Selection.Paste()
    DTE.ActiveDocument.Selection.Text = "= Value"
End Sub
Next, bring up the Tools-Options dialog box, go to Keyboard page, and assign a shortcut key combination to the Morph
