SortedResourcePane Extension for Microsoft Expression Blend

Did you ever noticed the unsorted list of resource files in the Resources pane in Expression Blend? This tiny extension will automatically sort the entries on any change.

Warning

This software was not tested in deep by now (but will be soon). Thus use it AS IS and be aware of possible errors in Expression Blend -- even if I did not see any issues by time of writing. To disable this extension, simply remove the .dll from the extensions folder and restart Blend.

Requirements

  • Expression Blend 4 w/ SP1 (4.0.20901.0)
  • Expression Blend Preview for Silverlight 5 (4.1.20402.0)
  • Expression Blend for Visual Studio 2012 (5.0.40218.0)

The following assemblies must exist in the root folder of Expression Blend:

Microsoft.Expression.DesignSurface.dll
Microsoft.Expression.Extensibility.dll
Microsoft.Expression.Framework.dll

Installation

Download precompiled assembly

Extract the containing .dll to the Expression Blend Extensions folder.

  • for Blend 4: %ProgramFiles%\Microsoft Expression\Blend 4\Extensions\
  • for Blend 5: %ProgramFiles%\Microsoft Expression\Blend Preview for Silverlight 5\Extensions\
  • for Blend 2012: %ProgramFiles%\Microsoft Visual Studio 11.0\Blend\Extensions\

You may need to create the Extensions folder.

Build it on your own

Simply build the solution. It will automatically try to copy the binary SortedResourcePane.Blend#.Extension.dll to the Expression Blend Extensions folder. This means you need Administrator privileges to do so - or simply modify target folder ACLs.

Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
