Copy As HTML
This is a lightweight tool that allows you to copy code from the Code Window and convert it into HTML while preserving syntax highlighting, indentation, background colour and font face.
Form1 : Form
To copy code in HTML format:
- In the Code Window, highlight the code that you want to copy.
- Right-click on the selected code.
- Click on "Copy As HTML..." on the context menu.
- Select the options you want in the settings dialogue.
- Optionally click "Save As Defaults" so that the Add-in remembers them.
- Click on OK.
The code will then be copied to the Clipboard in two formats: HTML format and text format. These two formats cater for the two views you typically get in a blog editor: WYSIWYG view and HTML code view. Note: You can also access the Add-in from the Menubar –> Edit –> Copy As HTML...

Copy As HTML Source
- HTML Encode. Converts the HTML source code to encoded HTML.
- Syntax Highlighting. Applies full syntax highlighting to the HTML-encoded HTML source code.
Use Class Names
Your custom colours are left intact because it converts the RTF, outputted by Visual Studio, into HTML.
Line numbering is produced by making use of HTML ordered list; this produces far more efficient HTML code than span tags cluttering up your webpage. This approach requires co-operation from the accompanying style sheet. The example below assumes the default class name is being used:
Also, empty span tags are removed; something that many RTF to HTML converters leave behind in the conversion process.
