Sorting Text in Visual Studio
Sometimes you need to sort some lines of code in Visual Studio – for instance, if you have a long list of Open XML content types, Open XML relationship types, or elements names, you may want that list to be sorted. Here is a little VB snippet (from stackoverflow) that sorts text.
Sub SortLines() Dim Selection As TextSelection = DTE.ActiveDocument.Selection Dim Lines() As String = Selection.Text.Replace(Environment.NewLine, Chr(13)).Split(Chr(13)) Array.Sort(Lines) DTE.UndoContext.Open("Sort Lines") ' Edit - see comments ' Selection.Text = String.Join(Environment.NewLine, Lines) Selection.Delete() Selection.Insert(String.Join(Environment.NewLine, Lines)) DTE.UndoContext.Close() End Sub
Posting this here so I can find it again easily.
