After installing it in VS2010 Professional the "CNTRL+M+O" short cut to collapse all doesn't work.

Other plugins installed
1)VS2010 SP1
2)POSTSharp
3)ANTS Profiler Add in
4)JetBrains ReSharper6.0

Uninstalling it as "CNTRL+M+O" short cut is necessary.

It is magnificent

Works great. I have been searching for a long time before I found this extension. Do one thing a time and do it perfect.

Does exactly what it says. One of those things that should come by default with VS.

  • Hey
    2 Posts | Last post April 14, 2014
    • Could you make same extension but for C++ please? 
    • I'm afraid I have too little time and will to support this add-on as long as creatig new one. However, you can copy, modify and release your own version from my sources: https://github.com/Skybladev2/C--outline-for-Visual-Studio
      You will just need to change language affinity attribute.
  • VS 2012 Support
    5 Posts | Last post October 08, 2013
    • Please provide support for VS 2012!
    • Sure, when it is released.
    • :-/ im using vs 2012?
      what do you mean when it is released?
      looking forward to it, thank you in advance!
      
    • I mean it has been released a day ago, so I should make VS 2012 verion in a few days.
    • Hi Skybladev2
      It's a year later now. I just tried installing it in VS2012 and it says it is 'not installable on any currently installed products.
      
      We'd all REALLY appreciate it if you could release an updated version
      
      Thanks!
  • Suggestion for future
    2 Posts | Last post February 05, 2013
    • Can you, in the future, add the ability to collapse cases within a switch as well(colon type)? It would be helpful.
    • I say no, because it requires to write some special parse logic, and this is impractical. I'm just too lazy to do it.
      
      As a dirty hack I can suppose to embrace contents of each case.
      As a good improvement I can suppose refactor and extract method from each case to improve readability.
  • Support for 2010 Express?
    2 Posts | Last post November 21, 2012
    • Would it be possible or reasonable for this to be installable on Visual C# 2010 Express Edition? Or is there something similar available for it already?
      
      Thanks.
    • No, Express Editions of Visual Studio do not support Tool installation, only Control and Template.
      I don't think there is something similar available for Express Editions.
  • Crash on Entity Framework generated code
    3 Posts | Last post August 25, 2012
    • Crashes VS.
      Steps to reproduce:
      
      1. Crete Console app
      2. Add Entity Model
      3. Addsome entity to model
      4. Try to view generated code
    • Hi, VBSs.
      
      I could not reproduce this problem, maybe because I have never worked with Entity Framework and don't understand correctly all needed actions.
      So I did the following:
      1. Created Console app.
      2. Selected "Add New Item" in project context menu.
      3. Selected "ADO.NET Entity Model"
      4. Selected "Empty model"
      5. Model1.edmx appeared in Solution Explorer.
      6. Added 1 Entity from the toolbox, saved project.
      7. Opened Model1.Designer.cs and no crashes (made it on 2 different PCs)
      
      Could you provide some more information about your environment?
      1. Edition of your Visual Studio? (I have Professional Edition)
      2. List of all other (extensions) tools installed.
      3. Do I need to install EntityFramework 5.0.0 from NuGet package manager to be able to reproduce your problem?
      4. Your OS?
    • Hi, no, you don't need Entity Framework 5.
      But, I will check, may be it conflicts with some other extension
  • Crashes workflow designer
    2 Posts | Last post June 13, 2012
    • I installed your extension and it worked great, it's exactly what I was looking for. However, a large part of my code base is built on workflow and I found that after installing your extension I could no longer view the designer of the workflows. The code displayed fine but the designer would instantly and silently crash VS.
    • Can you provide a sample solution, please?
  • Color settings chagne after installing C# Outline
    2 Posts | Last post April 12, 2012
    • I like this extension and it's really useful but it changes my color scheme ?! I don't use standard coloring and when installed this it changes color for URL's and I get this annoying change of background color for region that should be collapsed on mouse hover above expand control (+)
      
      When I uninstalled C# Outline all return to normal.
    • I tried to reproduce this issue, but all render correctly.
      1. Do you have any other tools installed?
      2. What is your color settings (at least most significant)?
      3. Can you post a screenshoot of the bug?
      4. What version and edition of Visual Studio do you have (with or without SP1)?
  • Notting happens
    2 Posts | Last post April 10, 2012
    • Dude, I have a fresh new installed vs 2010 ultimate, notting happens when I install this(no outlining), and I cant reinstall cause it says alredy installed to applicable products, whats going on?
    • Never mind, unity3d was opening vs 2008 and I didnt realize it
  • Change timer
    2 Posts | Last post March 11, 2012
    • Hi there
      
      in really huge files this tool is very slow. Every view seconds my complete Visual Studion stops for about 5 seconds - that is really anoying while typing code. I really need this tool because our (old) code consists of many ifs and elses with much code in braces.
      Is there a possibility to change the timer? For me it would be ok if the tool refreshes every view minutes instead of every view seconds. Or better it refreshes only when the "+" or "-" are clicked to show or hide codeblocks. While typing code it do not need to refresh.
      
      greets and thanks for this wonderful tool.
    • Hello.
      I know about this issue, however, I simply do not know how to speed up outlining process. 2,5 seconds timer is ok for most cases, so I did not change the source code nor create settings for this extension. So I simply provide fast and dirty fix: https://github.com/downloads/Skybladev2/C--outline-for-Visual-Studio/CSharpOutline.vsix
      This is the version with only one change - timer is set to 3 minutes. Hope this helps.
  • Black colorscheme
    2 Posts | Last post January 24, 2012
    • Could i change the color of the outlining? I think because of the black background, i cannot see the outlining lines :)
    • I think this could be made via ordinary Tools - Options - Environment - Fonts and Colors, because this tool changes only the way collapsable regions are created, but not the appearance. If there is no such a setting, I would rather say it is impossible.
      Meanwhile, I tried to change my backgroud to black and I was able to clearly see the outlining. Could you provide any visual feedback (screenshot)?
