VSCommands has a lot of useful features, unfortunately most are not self-evident and because of the missing description / help for each configurable property, one as to spend very much time to play around to see what happens if something is enabled / disabled. It's too bad for such a useful tool!
This is a very good point! I will be improving documentation in next few weeks but for now the best place to start is vscommands.com/blog - all new features are described there after each release. Thanks!
Hi Kris, thanks for your comment. Did you know that if IDE gets slow you can disable background file processing and have File Structure refresh only on file save or manually? You can do this from Tools | VSCommands | Options | Text Editor.
It would also be great if you could provide few more details about when your IDE slows down such as type of project and size of file. You can send it to email@example.com or vscommands.com/community
In terms of feactures it's the best. In terms of performance it's really bad! For large solution and large c# file it's a pain so big! It takes seconds to intellisense to respond and all hell freezes in that moment.
I've uninstalled it.
Dump: SOlution 15 projects File ~7000 lines. Win7 x64 VS 2010 SP1 4 ram Intel Core Duo T6600 @ 2.2GHz
Edit: Version 220.127.116.11 solved my performance problem. I've instaled once again.
@Edgar Gonçalves Zigne, Can you make sure that you have latest version (18.104.22.168) installed? It fixed known performance issue in c# files.
If you're on latest and still have performance problems then you can disable background files processing from Tools | VSCommands | Options | Text Editor | Process files in background or specify maximum number of lines in file above which precessing will be disabled.
Please let me know at firstname.lastname@example.org or vscommands.com/community - it will be easier to respond. Thanks!
What is the name of the setting Tools -> Options -> Environment ->Fonts and Colors that I need to change so that I can see the closing brace text? I use a dark color theme and it's nearly invisible.
The "More Information" link that this extension v10.3.9.12 displays in VS2010's Extension Manager is this URL, http://www.vscommands.com/features which now gives a 404 error. Please put in place a redirect on your web host, or update the extension to direct to a valid URL, eg the extension homepage, http://visualstudiogallery.msdn.microsoft.com/d491911d-97f3-4cf6-87b0-6a2882120acf. Thanks
This prevents file structure from displaying:
Public Class Class2
Friend Shared Sub GetMe(sysId As DateTime?, handler As [Delegate])
Nullable(of Datetime) seems to work, but the question mark breaks it.
Not sure, it just tried on several machines and it worked..
You can try direct link: http://visualstudiogallery.msdn.microsoft.com/d491911d-97f3-4cf6-87b0-6a2882120acf/file/25426/72/DPStudio.VSCommands.vsix
Hope it helps,
Sorry for that 404, must have missed it when migrating website to a new server.
I'll bring feature comparison site back i next couple of days, for you can have a look at archived version http://web.archive.org/web/20100904165511/http://vscommands.com/feature-comparison/
I am trying to upgrade to 10.3.9.12 version from 10.3.9.8 for VS2010 and getting the following error:
Uninstalling 'VSCommands for Visual Studio 2010', version 10.3.9.8.
System.IO.IOException: Cannot create a file when that file already exists.
I get the same error "Cannot create a file when that file already exists." when I try to just uninstall the VSCommands extension from Extension Manager.
I have tried removing following folder but no help:
"C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 10.0\Common7\IDE\Extensions\Squared Infinity\VSCommands for Visual Studio 2010"
and "%USERPROFILE%\AppData\Local\Microsoft\VisualStudio\10.0\Extensions\Squared Infinity\VSCommands 10"
Any help would be appreciated !!
Can you try this:
- close all instances of Visual Studio
- ensure that the folders you mentioned are deleted (they might have been recreated by VS)
- run visual studio as administrator
- uninstall previous version
Hope it will help!
