This is where Coding4Fun will house all our cool controls and tools that we come up with!  If there is a bug [report], a needed control/feature that could benefit everyone [chat], or you want to help out [email], please reach out to us!

Who uses us?  A lot of people but we only know if you tell us! If you use the Coding4Fun Tookit in your application, please let us know!


With a fresh install of Visual Studio 2012, you’ll need to update NuGet to get some of the newer packages such as the Coding4Fun Toolkit.  It is a super easy process and can be done in a few clicks.

  1. Go to the Tools Menu –> Extensions and Updates
  2. Go to the Update Tab –> Visual Studio Gallery

  3. Click Update
  4. Restart Visual Studio


From time to time things need to change like namespace, property names, and where things live.  Head over to our migration note wiki page changes.
