Sometimes the simplest things are most effective

I've been playing with Joel Fjordén's Code Style Enforcer
recently, and reckon it's one of the smallest, simplest and most useful VS IDE plugins around.

It's basically a DXCore plugin that redlines (draws a hand-drawn red line underneath) any c# code that doesn't meet the basic style guidelines from the iDesign C# coding standard.

I have to admit that finding the right properties page for the plugin to let me customise the rules too a while (find it by selecting DevExpress -> Options -> Code Standard -> Name Rules from the VS menu), but now it's great - I get instant feedback when I'm not meeting the basic coding standards.

Find it here...
And go use it!
