Syntax-Highlighted Code from Visual Studio as HTML

Maybe you wondered about syntax-highlighted code in this blog but does not provide any tool for this. If you use Visual Studio, just try this CopySourceAsHtml add-in.

CopySourceAsHtml generates HTML source of your syntax-highlighted code in VS. You can select and copy your code as HTML to clipboard, so your syntax-highlighted code can be placed anywhere.

Here are my settings of CopySourceAsHtml add-in:

My "File Style" is:

border:1px solid black;

padding: 8pt;

width: 94%;

overflow: auto;

background-color: #F0F0F0;

Here is an example output:

using System;


class HelloWorld


  static void Main()


    Console.WriteLine("Hello, World!");   



kick it on

Hey, Angwin, I was just testing this tool on VS 2005 and it works fine. I would like to ask you, if exists something similar for Microsoft Web Developer 2005 Express, because I'm developing in ASP.NET mostly...
