Great extension, unfortunately the grouping by region is very sporadic in VS2015, as already mentioned by the last reviewer. Most of the time it doesn't work.

It seems to work only for files that were never opened before. Once you open a file, close it and then try to reopen it, it won't work anymore, even if you restart VS.

Marko, anybody using CodeMAP in VS2015 should join the beta for the new version. Moving to a Roslyn-based custom code model allowed for an almost perfect code structure representation (regions included of course) plus it is muuuch faster.
For joining the beta, see the first boxed paragraph on the description tab.

After I upgraded to VS2015 the regions no longer show up in the code map.

Please contact me for information on joining the private beta for VS 2015.

Great timesaver, great extension!

Suggestion: It would be great to have additional keyboard shortcuts:
1) Focus the "Filter"-Textfield
2) Toggle sorting between alphabetical / same-as-code
3) Show / hide methods that are implemented in another file

Thank you for the suggestions!

the default Sorting of the sideview should be to keep my order of items in the code. I uninstalled it when I first tried it since it was mixing up the order I had, till I found out at some other machine that one can change the sorting to keep the order I have in my code

George - just wanted to say that your suggestion has been noted!

I have tried several similar code-structure visualizers, even Resharper's File Structure. This one is by far the most intuitive, easy-to-read, easy-to-understand and elegant of them. Can't live without it now :)

Awesome tool!
Navigating in a long code was a nightmare before VS10X. Thanks!

However, I have a suggestion; It would be nice if you add different variations of text colors. Almost every color label makes regions unable to read. (Dark theme)

Great Tool!

But since VS Community 2015 RC there are problems. First installation was fine, but after working with VS 2013 Pro and starting VS 2015 again, there is no more VS10X menu.

I wrote a support question on your website, but there was no response to it.

I will be glad to offer you support, but asking for it through a 2-star review based on no value judgment at all is not the way to go. Please write to supportATaxtoolsDOTcom and we will re-start from there.

for long my must have for C#. In constant development and prices are bearable. However, I am pretty disappointed with still lacking of java script support.

by Gayan85 | October 24 2014

great tool and this makes everything possible on code navigation in the file.

by YoungjaeKim | August 25 2014

it would be nice if it shows distinctive icon graphics on [TestMethod] attribute. possibly green colored?

This sounds interesting - I will make sure to have a look at it!

Echt ne super Sache! Kann ich jedem weiter empfehlen.

by Jinghao.Song | August 21 2014

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.

Hmm... this shouldn't have happened. I will add it to the bug tracker and make sure to have it analyzed.

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!

Thank you :-)

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.

by Miroxlav | June 06 2014

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.
