I’ve just finished coding up a new version of MoXAML Power Toys. This release adds a new keyword search function and tidies up the commenting functionality based on feedback.
Highlight a word in the source and select Lookup keyword from the menu, and voila – a Google and Live search are performed based on the keyword (using the appropriate language type as well).
Menu in action
Search window in operation
The comment feature now places nicely with the existing comment command, so if you have an ordinary XAML comment in place, running the MoXAML commenter on it will handle it just as if the original comment had been done with MoXAML.
Another new feature in the Commenter is the ability to add an empty <!– –> comment so you can add your own comment text in.
After downloading, you’ll need to change the extension from .doc to .zip. This is a requirement of WordPress.com
Installer – no source: moxaml21releasezip

As always, keep your comments and requests coming in. No idea goes unconsidered.
The original code has been heavily rejigged to make it easier for me to add new features and in the process I’ve added a new power toy; now it’s simple to convert an automatic property to use INotifyPropertyChanged. All you need to do is pick the property in the code window and select Notify Property (C# Only), and it will add the necessary plumbing.
Cunningly enough, it adds the Changed method if it’s not already present. ;->

After the command:
You can download the latest source (and a setup) here. (Please redownload this package, I’ve updated the setup project to move the application Addin file into the Addins directory, and to point it to the installation folder as a custom action).
Source moved here.
As always, keep your comments coming in and let me know what else you’d like to see – and while you’re at it, don’t forget to download the original XAMLPowerToys.
