How to Run C# Script in Visual Studio Code

Visual Studio Code’s C# functionality is tailored to cross-platform.NET Core programming. Our goal with VS Code is to make it a superb cross-platform C# writer. C# apps operating on.NET Core or Mono can be debugged using VS Code. Because of this approach, VS Code does not identify several standard C# program formats. An ASP.NET MVC Program is a form of non-project category.

The C# module for Visual Studio Code can produce the files you'll need to construct and troubleshoot. If you skipped the alert after you first launched a new C# application, you might still execute this action by entering '.NET' and initiating from the Command Palette (View > Command Palette).

There are several things you must perform throughout this "operation" in addition to operate C# in Visual Studio Code. So, let's see how to get VS Code ready to execute C#!

But first, some preparation.

Launch Visual Studio Code firstly, and then install the.Net Core SDK if you’ve not previously. Lastly, after these two have been downloaded, we can install the c# plugin in VS Code. Note: Under VS Code, there are several extensions to choose from, ensuring you get the appropriate one. To use it, go to ‘Extensions’ and enter in C#. Choose the plugin which includes the word “Omnisharp” from the file and select “Install.”

Getting the Operation Started

It’s finally time to begin developing the framework for our project - We only have to create a drive and enter a couple of commands to do this. Select ‘Open Folder’ from the finder menu and navigate an unoccupied folder where you want to start your work.

Now we have to start skeleton within the folder after it has loaded. We'll run the dotnet function from the interface to accomplish this. If you don't notice a prompt at the foot of VS Code, pick ‘View->Terminal' to bring it up and perform the command below.

dotnet new console

This will generate two documents in our folder configuration: a project specification application (.csproj) and a core document (.cs) that will contain our programming. We'll also see the usual "Hello World" example by default. Also, if you are asked to install any additional resources, select ‘Yes.'

Suppose you've made it this far. Congratulations! You've successfully configured your VS Code installation to process c# code!

Where’s my NuGet?

Simply printing Hello World to the console is excellent and all, but we all know that anything we write is much, much more complex. NuGet is functionality that those using the full-blown version of Visual Studio have come to love and depend on.</p>

NuGet is a nifty minor package manager that allows us to maintain what packages and assembly references we have attached to our projects, maintaining and limiting versions and conflicts! So, it’s a must to have it within VS Code; otherwise, I’ll go back to the original Visual Studio for my c# projects. Thankfully, we have a way of getting it – the nifty Visual Studio Code extensions!

Choose the Plugins menu, look for NuGet Program Manager and download it- simple as that!

Now that we already have NuGet set up let's take a glance at how we would handle our modules. The simplest way I've discovered is to press the F1 button to carry up the Visual Studio Control Palette, which is a handy little tool for running special instructions within our project. Just start entering the word ‘NuGet,' and then you can get a series of notifications presenting alternatives, one of which is the ‘Add Package' function.

That's how you can run the C# program in Visual Studio Code. Follow up on the above methods, which will help you to process the program.
