  1. To get start,  this page helps.
  2. To choose right extension method, I inspected source code of similar tools. For my case, it’s StyleCop.
  3. To understand VSPackage project, read How VSPackages Add User Interface Elements to the IDE.
  1. To set correct parent guid:id, refer project XAML Markup Styler. Two post are helpful here:
