switch code snippet power

Today I discovered the code snippet with the best timesaving ever: switch. You can use it from the snippet menu (CTRL + K, X)

or you can simply type switch and use code completion (CTRL + SPACE and TAB)

Then replace the switch_on placeholder with your expression and press arrow down. Now every enum value is a case statement. No more typing everything.

Whenever I find myself typing stuff that could be concluded from declarations I might end up using a code snippet.

My work as a recruited developer changes almost every month. I like challenges and sharing the solutions with others. On my blog I’ll mostly post about my work, but expect an occasional home project, productivity tip and tooling review.
