Code Snippets functions suggestion
I've posted a suggestion for the Visual Studio team about Code Snippets. This would allow to generate the whole definition for a class Property having the user only enter its type and name, by means of converting the entered name to camelCase and ProperCase (checking the property name is properly cased while on it).
