In Visual Studio 2005 there is a great new feature called Code Snippets. This feature allows you to quickly insert common code constructs like a for-loop, try-catch, private field-public property. These snippets are stored (and programmed) in XML. Using the Snippet Editor this should be a breeze. By the way this editor is for VB .NET. Here’s a C# Snippet Editor. And here a dual language. And maybe even better: sharing snippets.
