how to develop custom add-in for sharepoint designer 2010


  • Hi ,

    Can anybody suggest me how to create a custom add-in for sharepoint designer 2010?

    Are there any templates through which i can create a managed add-in using C#? or developing COM add-in (VB6) is the only solution?

    Please suggest.

  • Hi,  Sujasree


           Based on my knowledge, there have not been public samples and walkthroughs for SharePoint Designer 2010 add-in.

           MSDN provides some sample for Word and Excel:  Office Development Samples and Walkthroughs:

           Additionally, VS 2010 have not provide such templates yet.

           So would you please share your business requirement with us?

           SPD is a just client to manage and customize SharePoint site, its powerful but difficult to do extension.

           You could also consider builting your custom add-in elsewhere, e.g.: in a customized admin page or webpart, which is easy to achieve.

           Hope this can help!


    Best Regards,

  • Hi Aaron,

    Thanks for your time and Sorry for the late response. Actually my requirement is to integrate my company product with sharepoint designer 2010. We did it for sharepoint designer 2007 with a template available on codeplex ( But i didn't find any such template for 2010 designer. I am sure that I can do this add-in for 2010 designer using VB6 as a COM add-in. But i would like to know if any visual studio templates are available so that coding in .net language would be easier.  please feel free to close this thread if you are sure that no such templates are available so far.

  • My last hope is also gone. I can't even create a COM add-in. "Sharepoint designer version 12" is the only supported one on visual basic 6 platform. please suggest if anyone has any clue.

  • Just an update, if anyone needs in future.

    I extended the visual studio project template provided at for Sharepoint designer 2010 (i did only for C#) and then created an add-in using that created template. As part of add-in, I extended the sharepoint designer ribbon to integrate my product.

    Regards, Sujasree
