Snippets rule!

prop [tab] [tab] string [tab] username [tab] Username

That is all the typing you need to do to create a new instance read/write property in VS2005. If you want a read only property you need only replace prop with propg.

Unfortunately I didn’t see a snippet to create a static property in the same fashion. That is easily remedied though since new snippets can be added through the Code Snippets Manager (Ctrl+K, Ctrl+B).

Expect a snippet from me soon to automatically add Changing/Changed events with protected On methods along with the newly created property.
