A Handy MSDN Bookmarklet

If you’re like me, you don’t do all of your coding in Visual Studio.  That’s when you start to miss the convenience of just hitting F1 to bring up the MSDN documentation for a specific class.

To bring that simplicity to your browser, just paste the following into the URL field of a manually created bookmark:

javascript:(function(){c=prompt("Enter the fully-qualified name of a class, method, property, etc.:","System.Object");window.location="http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/"+c+"(v=VS.100).aspx"}());
