Project Description

I wrote a Visual Studio Add in that makes it possible to generate inline GUID's with Keyboard Shortcuts without opening the GUID tool true: Tools > Create GUID. There are tons of examples on how to create one yourself, but there was no downloadable solution. So I've added this project to save you some time.

This inline generator is very handy for SharePoint Development or solutions where developers have to generate quite allot of GUID’s throughout our solutions.


To download the installer for this add-in:

After installation, you can setup a Shortcut true: Tools > Options > Environment > Keyboard. 

Lookup GuidGen and set the Shortcut. I'd used Ctrl + N, Ctrl + G
