One of the ways you can be a more efficient developer, is to write
less stupid code. Writing Property code by hand is stupid, Property Builder for VB.NET is smart.
You tell it the variable (like EmployeeID) and the data type and it will create the following code:
Private mlngEmployeeID as Long
Public Property EmployeeID() As Long
Set(ByVal Value As Long)
mlngEmployeeID = Value
Pretty easy. Included in the download is the installation (unzip and run the .msi file). If you wish to
learn how to write add-ins, download the source code for the add-in. Finally, if you don't want to install
the add-in, you can do the same thing with a macro. Except, it won't be as user-friendly and pain-free.
I took my inspiration from a similar tool for VB6 written by Paul Sheriff from PDSA, minus what I felt
were superflous features. Also, please do not make a single modification and then release your own version
without linking back here. That's pretty reasonable, I feel. One last thing, I wrote it in vs.net 2003, so
it won't work in vs.net 2002. It is easy to port it back to vs.net 2002, but I simply don't have that
