Item Template for Visual Studio 2010: Custom ‪BizTalk‬ Functoid available in TechNet Gallery

Following my previous post here’s another small contribution: Item Template for Visual Studio 2010: Custom BizTalk Functoid.

The New Functoid Class item template for Visual Studio 2010 allows you to create new Functoids for BizTalk Server 2010 without having to code the entire class and therefore allowing you to focus on what really matters, the functoid behavior. Just start a new Visual Studio C# library project and add a functoid class to start building your BizTalk Server 2010 custom Functoid.

How can I install the Item Template?

To use this item template in your C# library projects just download the project (Don´t unzip) and copy the compressed file to C:\Users\UserName\Documents\Visual Studio 2010\Templates\ItemTemplates\VisualC#.

Now when you add a new item to your project you will now see a new option: “Custom FunctoId Class”


I really like to engage others people in this small projects, this time I was lucky to get the participation of two of my coworkers: Rui Machado that addressed the creation of a template and Sónia Gomes who created the beautiful icon that is associated with the template.
