This has been a long chapter, and I have covered a lot of ground. However, I thought it necessary to get you into an add-in that is not really complex, but does something really useful. This allows you to get your feet wet developing a real add-in with some substance, without overwhelming you with the enormity of the extensibility object.

You learned that through the use of some common library methods, you can introduce new code manipulation functionality without having to concern yourself with the intricacies of the extensibility object every time you want to get code from a text editor, operate on it, and put it back. In several future chapters, you'll consider some of the many things that can be done with this framework of library methods.

In Chapter 4, I discuss the challenges presented to you when you have to debug an add-in. Debugging in Visual Studio .NET has some negatives, but I think you'll see that the plusses of the new debugging features outweigh the minuses.
