You can now do all of this from within Developers studio. I spent a couple of Saturdays writing a couple of add-ins that will do this. The first one is HtmlOut and it will convert the source into an HTML file with full syntax highlighting.
A couple of notes on this dialog. The output to RTF is always grayed because it has not been implemented yet. The Project Files radio button under display file causes a read of the .dsw file (Probably will break in future versions of DevStudio). The List control does not act correctly (I think any way).
The next item is the print portion. It is pretty much the same as the HtmlOut except is sends the output to the printer. The same dialog is used as above so the same notes apply.
Before I post the source code I would like to clean it up first. Like I said I wrote this in a couple of weekends so its pretty messy, however if you just cant wait e-mail me and I will send it to you as is.
I need to point out a few people that helped make this possible.
Andrei Stcherbatchenko The syntax coloring text editor. I used this code to do the parsing for me. This is a great set of classes unfortunately I butchered these to get the effect I wanted. http://www.codeguru.com/editctrl/crysedit.shtml
Chris Maunder The Hyperlink control and the color selection combo boxes. Once again a great set of classes. http://www.codeguru.com/controls/hyperlink.shtml
Giancarlo Iovino An improved Hyperlink control. Great control that I use a lot. http://www.codeguru.com/controls/hyperlinkex.shtml
CodeGuru This is the best web site for developers around.
Extract the zip to the dev studio addin directory. Should be something like c:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio\Common\MsDev98\AddIns
Click the Tools\Customize menu item.
Click The Add-ins and Macro files tab.
Check the "HtmlOut Developer Studio AddIn" and "Print Color class"
You will now have two small tool bars. You can use the Alt Dag method to move these new buttons to your regular toolbars.
