Brilliant! But when I installed the latest version of CodeMap and CommentExtender at the same time, "VS2013 Ultimate with Update 3" has TWO "VS10X" identical menus. This looks weird. Please fix this problem ASAP. Thanks.

I have JetBrains Resharper, Telerik JustCode, DevExpress CodeRush as well as the full CodeSmart suite. Each of these products have similarities and differences, but the only one I have kept installed is CodeSmart of which VS10x CodeMap is a part. Good work, Mr. Kiss!

The BEST code visualizer out there - and I've tried pretty much all of them. Very intuitive and flexible. Plus the support from AxTools is always fantastic.

Thanks for the wonderful tool it works great in C# projects. but it locks down my visual studio when it updates references in C++ i keep getting a message saying

"please wait while intellisense and browsing information are updated"

This problems goes away once i disable codemap for C++ , can you help me out

Can you please be so kind and delete the <SolutionName>.SDF file that can be found at the same location as the <SolutionName>.SLN file? This is used by MS (I think) for caching C++ parsing results etc. As to why this file gets corrupted (we don't touch it in any way), beats me.

Great plugin which helps me understand large portions of code very quickly.

After some troubles with support we finally got into contact and I hope all is in good way now. Depending on that, I believe I'll increase my rating to 5* in the future.

it's wonderful and helpful;but i find a bug ;when i rename my "cpp" file to "c" or rename "h" to "hpp"(i just want to check whether i can rename my file ,it seems i can't),Vs2010 must crash;and i'am sure "VS10x CodeMap" cause it ;because when i disabled the "VS10x CodeMap",it not happen,when i enabled "VS10x CodeMap",crash;so how deal it?i like "VS10x CodeMap",i don't want to uninstall it;

I will definitely have a look at this issue condition, thank you for reporting!

EDIT Mar 31: Problem found and fixed. Updated binaries will be available later this week.

It must warn me it's trial before I start using it.

There is a clearly readable "Trial" label added by Microsoft at the right of the product title as you can see above ("VS10x CodeMap" in purple, "Trial" in blue). Given this, I fail to understand what is the one star rating based upon.

Not good. If solution has more large amount of project. It brings VS2010 to knees and then kill it. Fine for small projects.

We are using CodeMap internally with quite large projects and the only delay (which is still bearable) is when opening truly huge code files. Is this what you are referring to?

EDIT 2014-02-12:

Great tool!

Thanks for fixing both things! I really appreciate it.

Original text:

Great tool!

I just wish it wouldn't open this page on every update.

EDIT 2014-01-30: I know I don't speak for everybody, but I think there are two problems that people have with the weekly updates:

1. Having to restart Visual Studio.
2. The update makes itself front-and-center in several ways (opens this very web page, shows the "Welcome to Code Map {0}!" collapsible).

#1 is something only Microsoft can address.
#2, however, is something you can address.

Personally I dislike it when extensions in any app put up a "new update" page (there are several Firefox/Chrome extensions that do the same thing, and it's just as annoying there). It's very prominent with this extension, though, due to frequent updates (which I like btw!)

I would recommend ditching the page-launch-on-install and keeping the collapsible (as it is not as obtrusive and is easy to collapse), or at least provide options to disable those.

Thanks again for making a great product!

Nice extension! I'd love to see TypeScript support and VS2013 version of the extension.

Update: I don't really like that updates are coming so often lately, this can negatively impact developer's productivity.

8 users want to use.
  We will contact you for a license

Awesome! thanks for this extension.

EDIT: When it left BETA phase, I think the price went very high (40 US)

by Kerem Kat | November 28 2013

It is a great productivity tools for huge codebases. If only there would be some way to cache all files in solution, to lower the 'freeze' while opening a large file.

by Jeremy.DeVoss | September 18 2013

I use this tool all, day every day. Whenever I use a Visual Studio that doesn't have Code Map installed, it feels like everything has to get done the hard way.

Thanks for all the good work.

Love CodeSMART - this offering enhances productivity tremendously. Thanks.

A very good tool, but the customer support and communications from the AxTools is one of the worst I have experienced in my twenty-plus years of software development. If you have licensing issues, don't depend on them to resolve it!

Is the following the issue you claim was unanswered (edited for your own privacy)?

To whom it may concern,

I purchased a single license for the VS10x Code Map - Unlimited for $40 about a year ago. I received the license information, in my email and was able to use it without any problems. I have since left the company I purchased it at, and have no access to that email anymore (...). The license, however, was purchased by me and is not the property of the previous company I worked for (...).
I believe the credit card used to purchase the license ends in **** and is a Visa.

My current contact information is:

How would I go about changing this information and having a new license email sent to the current email address?

It is okay, I understand your situation perfectly. I was able to retrieve your original Code Map authorization key as following:

Please note it's a 131-character string on a single line.

May I ask, does anybody still use Code Map at ...? Because if it does, I will have to ban the above authorization key and generate a new one for you.

I can't live without it anymore, when I see my colleagues struggling to find some function it makes me sad for them, it's so easy for me ! :)
Also the highlighting of the last edited part of a document is quite useful.
I'll still retain one star because the updates are a bit too often to my taste (as they are not really critical), once a month would be well enough.

It's very good! Thanks.
