This version of the Neovolve.Toolkit installs a Visual Studio package. The package provides IDE support for the toolkit.

Adding Project References

The toolkit is registered into Visual Studio so the assemblies appear in the Add Reference dialog for projects that target the 4.0 framework.

The Add Reference dialog displays the following when the project targets the 4.0 Client Profile framework.

Changing the project to target the full 4.0 framework then adds additional assemblies to the Add Reference dialog.

Intellisense Support

The toolkit installs xml documentation files along with the assemblies. Visual Studio uses these xml files to provide intellisense documentation in the IDE.

Code Contract Support

The toolkit uses Code Contracts. The toolkit installs the code contract assemblies that allow the verification of project code against the contracts when code contracts are enabled.

Workflow Activity Toolbox

The Visual Studio package registers toolbox items for the custom WF4 activities in the toolkit.

These activities can be dragged to the WF designer like the other WF activities. When this is done, the project will automatically have Neovolve.Toolkit.Workflow assembly added to it as a reference.
