You can insert Visual Studio code snippets fromIntellisense, or by opening the Code Snippets Manager from theTools menu. But while most of the snippets that come with Visual Studio are only a few lines long, some of the Bing code snippets include entire methods, and in some cases even entire files.
Each Bing code snippet includes comments to indicate its purpose and usage, requirements, and a link to relevant documentation on MSDN.
