Very nice. Great for a large project if you are starting out cold and want to get a good overview. Makes navigation a snap.

Thank you

This is a very helpful tool. Very eager to see VS2010 be avaiable!

I don't experience any bugs like the other reviews. I think it is great. It does flicker whenever you add a new member if you don't have the window set to Auto Hide. But it only flickers for like half a second. I think it's a nice free alternative to ReSharper.

Very good, very useful, BUT... what about sorting option?
The lack of ability to sort all items alphabetically, gives me headache when working with large projects.
As much as the filtering feature helps with finding stuff, the option of sorting would be REALLY helpful. I know you can use the built-in members dropdownlist in the editor for A-Z display, but to have an option of choosing the member type + sorting = would make it an ultimate members lookup tool!
Hope you can implement it sometime soon. It really shouldn't be difficult ;)
Otherwise BIG thumbs up!

Buggy as hell. Does not work. Not with C# Projects and not with C++ Projects. Instead it is endless flickering and jams the complete Visual Studio (2008 Pro).

It's not bad, but it's not amazing either.

If you don't mind spending the money, do yourself a favor and check out the file structure viewing capabilities in Resharper.

If you're a tightwad.. well... this is the tool for you. :)

My daily used view! Nearly perfect. There is just one thing: the filter should not reset on every new class/file, but rest on its setting!

This PowerToy is a great idea but unfortunately it has a nasty bug which causes Intellisense to disappear in many cases. I recommend avoiding this download until this bug is fixed.

If you deal with large code files, this is a must-have. This tool allow you to easily navigate, filter and find the right code elemtns in your code file. I love this tool!
