Visual Studio Templates for DSP Classes

When you need to use a custom Docentric DSP class, you can use Visual Studio templates for different use cases.
Each of the VS templates creates a new class that extends DocDataSourceProviderSrsReporting, the Docentric base DSP class (or so called Default DSP class), but with different overridden methods, TODO tasks and useful comments, depending on the use case you currently have.

If you are not sure which group your scenario belongs to, use DSP Class General Template. However, you can always override additional methods, or even create such a class (which extends DocDataSourceProviderSrsReporting) manually.
