Join Walt Ritscher for an in-depth discussion in this video Explore commonplace project templates, part of Visual Studio Essential Training: 07 Understanding Project Types.
- In this video I'll look at a few project templates,…so that you can get an idea…of what each template provides for you.…Later I'll look at more of these templates in more detail.…I'll start by looking at the C#…Console Application template.…Now this template lives in the visual C# node…under the Windows section,…in the Classic Desktop area.…Here's the item I want.…I'll rename the project ConsoleApp1…and I'll choose a different Solution name.…
Then click OK.…One of the key benefits of using a project template…is that Visual Studio loads a preconfigured set of files.…You can see them over here,…there's not too many.…There's one here under the Properties node…named AssemblyInfo.cs.…There's another one named App.config…and the third one is Program.cs.…Another advantage of the templates…is that Visual Studio configures…my project with defaults.…You can see some of that here these Reference list.…It's filled with common .Net assemblies…that are commonly used in Console Apps.…
