Designed and developed by LeXtudio.

Alex is an add in for SharpDevelop IDE. By wrapping up the powerful AStyle executable, it provides SD users much more powerful coding style support than original Ctrl + I shortcut. The new shortcut for Alex is Ctrl + W.

Why I Need This Add In?
You may wonder why I created this add in when SharpDevelop already supports Ctrl + I. According to my experience, AStyle can handle the most ugly source files I've ever seen, but SharpDevelop cannot handle them at all. :-)
