I have seen a lot of people asking for a C# Coding Standard and Design Guide. Here are some documents and tools that I refer to:
IDesign C# Coding Standard
C# Coding Standards document
Encodo C# Handbook
Design Guidelines for Developing Class Libraries
Internal Coding Guidelines
Tools - StyleCop
I have been working on C# coding guidelines since 2003 and have recently published free guidelines for C# 3.0. Check it out at http://www.dennisdoomen.net/2009/03/new-coding-guidelines-for-c-30.html
Thanks Dennis for that link!
We use StyleCop to check the coding guidelines (style) and FxCop to check basic design guidelines.We think that only with tool support, the guidelines can be followed. If the guidelines are just "Paper" then there will be a lot of violations (by will or not) and you would have to make code reviews to check the basic guidelines. I prefer that code reviews consider higher goals than just style of coding.
