Please read the article, post questions and rate it.
The CodeCentral download includes full source code as well as binaries (BDS 2006) for the add in. The binaries also work in Delphi 2007 with recompiling.
I've been using this in my own IDE version for about 5 months now and can't live without it. Hope you find it useful as well.
