Application info

When I came to Microsoft I saw a really cool tool being used internally and immediately wanted to work with the author, Rocky Downs (who is blogless, but exceeding talented), to get it released. Fast forward to now, plus an installer, and here it is.

The basic (as in "only") idea is that RockScroll extends the scrollbar in Visual Studio to show a syntax highlighted thumbnail view of your source. This is really useful for those excessively long source code files you know you have. Its just one DLL and you can turn it off from Tools|AddIns just by un-checking the checkbox.

Integration level may vary depending on the application version and other factors. Make sure that user are using recent version of RockScroll for Visual Studio. Please contact us if you have different integration experience.
