ANTLR integration in Visual Studio

I put up a tech preview of the tool I wrote to help with my language services development. It’s a basic ANTLR v3 language service that integrates into Visual Studio 2005 and/or 2008. While it doesn’t have the feature set of, say, ANTLRworks, it’s still proven extremely useful for my development tasks. If you are following my articles on developing Visual Studio language services built on ANTLR, you may find it helpful. The main page for the project is here:

And a list of features with screenshots is here:

    Hello, I try to install nFringeAntlrSetup-0.9.16251.0.msi. I have .NET 3.5, VS2008 Prof., ANTLR 3.1.1. The package install successfully, but there isn’t any new project category in Visual Studio New Project Dialog.

    What should I do to start that tool in VS2008 ? Thank you, Petrov Alexander

    The best place to ask questions about nFringe is on the Pixel Mine forums: http://forums.pixelminegames.com/index.php?showforum=95

    This package doesn’t add a new project system. Just open up a .g or .g3 grammar in Visual Studio to use it.

    I noticed two problems with the ANTLR integration: – I am using (Antlr 2.7) .g files, and the type and method combos stay empty – I cannot set a breakpoint in an embedded code section anymore. Are these known issues ?
