Very useful, thank you...

by ZiyaSAL | May 04 2014

Excellent, thanks.

Clean, simple and just what I needed. Caveat: It does appear to occasionally add a bogus file (e.g. .js.map with no filename) when grouping files that have multiple extensions (like jquery.blah.js.map), but that is easy to correct and this has saved me loads on manual editing of my csproj files. THANK YOU!

This no longer seems to work. VS 2012, update 4

Finally! This is what Microsoft should have included a long time ago! Thank to José - 5 star from me.

Does exactly what it says it does, very helpful! It would be great if it could provide a context menu option when right-clicking a file to add a nested file under the selected file.

Doesn't work on websites. Useless for me.

Very, very thanks

Well, since we can no longer use macros to nest types A++ for this one. Thanks mate.

Lightweight, seconds to install, and works just as advertised. Great job!

Excelente fix! Thanks for sharing it.

The extension is great. One suggestion, however. When I select two items, I often have to click the drop-down to change the suggested root. Would be great if the extension could be more intelligent at guessing the root. For example, if you choose a .cshtml and .cs file, suggest the .cshtml as the root. Or maybe if it's easier, suggest the root as the first clicked item.

Very handy, but I can't rename nested items. (VS 2012)

by AAKoken | September 11 2012

It works great, I love it.

Very handy tool that's saved me piles of time. Now instead of unloading the project and hand-editing, I can group code files in seconds with this tool.

Not working. Seems that it is not supported anymore.

I did hard work to fix some problems after merging a pull request. I receive confirmation that now is working fine for some people.If you have any problems with this do not hesistate to contact me with more details.

On the other hand this project is open source.

  • Visual Studio 2008 Support
    1 Posts | Last post June 14, 2013
    • Would it be possible to add support for Visual Studio 2008?
  • When unNesting, the file gets deleted!!
    1 Posts | Last post March 04, 2013
    • That's a very serious bug, if happens to loose your code!
      
      Here is a video replicating the bug

  • Error when nesting TypeScript files in Windows 8 project
    2 Posts | Last post January 02, 2013
    • I'm trying to get TypeScript working in a Windows 8 project. After adding the build targets for TypeScript I've added a 'test.ts' file. It produces a 'test.js' file. When I try to nest the files I get an error:
      
      Unable to add project item "js\myscript.js": ADDRESULT_Cancel
      
      Any idea?
    • Has any one found a work around for this problem? 
  • Intelligent selecting of root

  • Problem still exists

    • Today I managed to update this extension, but as soon as I try to nest files VS gives me error which says that this might be caused by conflict with other extension or another version of this extension is installed. anyway this is configuration error. before this update everything worked perfectly
    • Seeing the error message:
      
      The 'NestIn.NestInPackage, NestIn, Version=1.1.2.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=735d15f764f78d03' package did not load correctly.
      
      The problem may have been caused by a configuration change or by the installation of another extension. You can get more information by running the application together with the /log parameter on the command line, and then examining the file 'C:\Users\<user>\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\VisualStudio\10.0\ActivityLog.xml'.
    • Right this is the exact message I receive every time I try to nest files.
    • Unfortunately, I'm having the same issue mentioned above.  I've reverted back to 1.0.0.3 for the time being.  I'm running VS 2010 SP1 (Premium).
    • It could be because of the pull request that added support to VS11. The project was being built in net 4.5.
      
      I changed back to .net 4.0 and seems to be working fine on both versions of visual studio.
      
      I uploaded a new version , please let me know if it work.
      
      
      sorry and thanks
    • Hello, I downloaded and installed the newest version 1.1.3 but I'm still having the same problems.
    • no same message after update
    • no the same message is displayed again and again 
    • Still the same error message. How do we download previous versions?
    • Does the author of this extension support it anymore? this is very important tool for as and we are having some serious problems not being able to use this extension.
    • I am the author, the project is opensource, i think it was broken since we added support for 2012. It is working on my VS2010 maybe because i have .Net 4.5 and Vs2012...
      
      I can revert back the commit that added support for 2012 if you want and deploy a new version.
      
      does this work for you guys?
    • Yeas at least I could try reverted version to see if that fix the problem
    • I installed a VM from scratch with Win7 and VS2010, and I was able to reproduce the problem. After one hour of debuging and logs I found out the problem.
      
      Last version (1.1.4) should work on both version of visual studio. Let me know if you keep experiencing problems.
    • I can confirm, that we experienced no problems after 1.1.4 update everything seems to work now.
      Thank you very much!!!
    • I can also confirm that the latest update 1.1.4 is now working with VS 2010 SP1 and .NET 4.0.  Thank you very very much for tracking down the problem - you're an excellent dev.
  • Doesn't work with two linked files
    3 Posts | Last post August 03, 2012
    • Please add support for "nesting" two linked files. I still have to do this manually in the project file with <DependentUpon />.
      
      Also, have the selection for the new root default to the item with the shorter name.
    • Hi, I do not have the nesting two linked files feature yet but I implemented the "selection for the new root default to the item with the shorter name".
      
      Feel free to send me a pull request here: https://bitbucket.org/jfromaniello/nestin/
      
      and I will deploy it inmeditely... I am not using visual studio much these days and i am very busy.
    • more about linked files, follow this issue:
      
      https://bitbucket.org/jfromaniello/nestin/issue/4/error-when-nesting-linked-files
      
      it seems to be not supported by visual studio. I am open to suggestions
  • AreThe 'NestIn.NestInPackage, NestIn, Version=1.1.3.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=735d15f764f78d03' package did not load correctly.

    • Is Anyone going to fix this? 
    • Pull requests or at least a lead are wellcomed. Did you ever read that this is an opensource project?
    • I have downloaded latest version, but the same problem exists. I think this problems started after adding support for VS 2012 Could u please provide earlier version we are using this extension in our everyday work and I personally think that this is the only extension which really keep project clean.  
  • Why not vs 202 rc? I unzipped the vsix changed the supported platforms and it works fine in vs2012

    • I have created updated version of the library and made a pull request on the project site. So hopefully author will accept it and update the package here on the VisualStudio Gallery.
    • I merged the branch of Lukas and published, so it should work fine in VS2012 now.
      
      
      thanks Lukas and Liviu
    • Thank you too ;)
