Synergy in Visual Studio

Version 10.3.3

You can use Visual Studio to develop traditional Synergy applications and Synergy .NET applications. Synergy DBL Integration for Visual Studio (SDI) is the product that makes this possible. See for information on requirements for SDI, and see the SDI release notes (REL_SDI.TXT) for known limitations.

There are a number of advantages to using Visual Studio for your Synergy development. You can develop for .NET, builds are often much faster, strong prototyping is automatic, and you have access to features such as IntelliSense and colorization. Synergy's integration with Visual Studio is extensive, so most applicable Visual Studio features are available for Synergy development, and some Synergy-specific features are added with SDI. See SDI features for information on Synergy's integration with Visual Studio.

Some topics in this section discuss the basics of SDI and developing in Visual Studio for both traditional Synergy and Synergy .NET. Other topics discuss traditional Synergy development in Visual Studio. (For information that is specific to Synergy .NET, see Synergy .NET Development.)


Topics in this section do not fully document third-party products, such as Visual Studio, or the development procedures required to use them. For full information on third-party products, refer to the documentation for those products.
