I've been looking at various documentation on creating add-ins for Arcmap in visual studio, and all I can find is old, old, old. When I right click the code window I can only see "insert snippet" in the context list, and really half the options in my list are different from the screen shots in the documents. Am I missing some kind of plug-in item in VS? It is 2015 Community version. Also where can I find recent documentation on add-ins for new versions of ArcMap? Thanks, cob

No clue about the first half of your question

For ArcMap and ArcGIS Pro specifically, look at the bottom of this page where they cover ArcMap and Pro, for python (net/java/c++) for arcmap and python and Pro sdk for ArcGIS Pro)

For example.... Python addins

Afraid I don't see what you're talking about Dan. I am using C# in Visual Studio, not Python. The walkthrough I found here references the snippet finder access from the VS code page. But I don't have that in VS 2015. Why not? Thanks Dan - cob

Perhaps you may find it here?   In VS studio either choose from the main menu Tools->Snippet Manager  or it CTRL-B

OK, I got it, so there is no search function in this version. Guess I have to get out my ArcObjects poster...

Snippet Designer - Visual Studio Marketplace     <--This plugin will allow you to search and maintain your snippets

View -> Other Windows -> Snippet Explorer

This can be attached to your interface as a tool as well
