Seeking tool to create custom collections

P: n/a
Until Generics arrives, the only way to do things like: create a
strongly-typed ArrayList-like object; create a strongly-typed HashTable
with given types for key and value; and so on; is to churn out a block
of code manually, for each strongly-typed collection wanted.

I remember someone here giving a link to a site or tool where you could
just say - give me the code for an ArrayList of MyClass (or whatever) -
and it would create the source for you. If anyone knows what I am
talking about then a link would be much appreciated!

You have add-ins (like mine below) to use code templates to generate
whatever repetitive code. It allows you to be asked values at insertion
time.

Look for CodeSmith. It does what you are describing.

That's the one! I could only remember "CodeProject", which is relevant
but not what I was after. CodeSmith is exactly the thing I remember
first seeing here.

Thanks!
