Visual Studio Gallery - StatePatternModeler

“This extension provides a project template to create a State Model. It also provides an item template that lets you generate code from that State Model. …

Check out these two tutorial videos that I did to demonstrate the extension:

One option would be to simulate state diagrams using class diagrams, as you suggest.

Another option would be to use Visual Studio 2010 UML "Activity Diagrams" as state diagrams.
