StyleManager's Key Features

Visual Style Editor

StyleManager's easy-to-use visual style editor lets you configure your own formatting rules using only simple mouse clicks. You're given intricate control over more than 70 different configurable options including:

  • Brace placement

  • Whitespace
  • Preprocessor commands
  • Declarations
  • Pointers and references
  • Expressions
  • Bracket spacing and position
  • Templates
  • Member alignment
  • and many more

What's more, StyleManager plugs straight into the Visual Studio .NET 2003 / 2005 / 2008 / 2010 development environment - making restyling your files a simple click in your IDE.

StyleManager's Customizer has comprehensive options

Style Customizer

StyleManager's preview window lets you see in real time how your code will look

The powerful style previewer allows you to see how your rules affect YOUR code, in real-time as you edit your style. It's so simple and easy to configure your style, you'll have your code reformatted in practically no time.

Style Previewer

Direct IDE Integration

StyleManager uses Visual Studio .NET files, projects and settings directly: There's no need for you to set up any special project settings or switch to another application; just choose your style from the integrated Style Chooser, and you're ready to go.

Editor Integration

Restyling a file with StyleManager really couldn't be simpler. The restyle operation happens 'in place' within the Visual Studio .NET editor, almost as if you'd restyled the file by hand. Just like any other source code change you might perform yourself, the change appears in the Undo buffer.


This makes it possible to preview the change and even compare the 'before' and 'after' effects of applying your style. It happens exactly as if you'd restyled the file manually, but saves you the time and effort of having to do so.

Project-Level Restyling

StyleManager helps you reformat whole projects at a time. Need to update a large body of legacy code? StyleManager uses Visual Studio .NET projects directly: Just select the project within the Solution Explorer and tell StyleManager to restyle it; the whole project will be updated in one go.

With project-level restyles you also get control over how StyleManager should backup your existing files. You can elect to use the Undo buffer just like single-file restyle operations, or you can have StyleManager copy the original files for safety. Of course, if you're using a source control system you can tell StyleManager that you already have backup support.

Read on to see some examples of StyleManager in action.
