Enforce consistent coding styles across a team using EditorConfig files in Visual Studio

In Visual Studio if you want to enforce consistent coding styles in a project or solution check out EditorConfig files. An Editor Config file can be checked into source control and it overrides local VS settingsĀ which means all developers don’t need to change their settings to align.. AWESOME!!!

… and since Visual Studio 2019 16.10 EditorConfig files now have a user interface so we don’t need to edit the files directly.

To run the formatting options you need to format document via Edit-> Advanced -> Format Document or click Ctrl+K,Ctrl+D or by running code cleanup.

An example of what the Visual Studio Editor Config interface looks like is below.
