I'm looking for a way to make it easy for developers to generate multiple files from preprocessed templates using a button on a Visual Studio toolbar. I have all the Preprocessed templates generating code by calling a standard T4Template script using
the TextTemplatingFileGenerator. However, I want to start the generation of these files from a button on a toolbar in the UI so that I can bring up my own UI, etc..
I'm using the T4Toolbox so that I can generate multiple files and add them to projects and source control. That works great when generating these by right clicking on a tt file and running the custom tool, but I wasn't sure if it would work if I created
a Visual Studio extension. The T4Toolbox uses a custom DTEProcessor. Will that be a problem?
