Re: Visual C# IDE Add a Menu to the IDE


At a minimum you will need to write a VS add-in. The project template ships with VS but you might have to have Pro or higher to get it. There are plenty of articles online on how to do it. The project template itself will create a menu item under Tools so it shouldn't be too hard to figure out. You basically just have to set up your menu structure when the add-in is set up in VS and then handle the command when the menu is used.
