A very simple and yet EXTREMELY useful extension. I spend so much less time jumping between different items in my code now.

This thing was absolutely awesome for navigating code.

Some projects of mine consist of 2-3k lines of code, and navigating to certain functions/subs made it a headache, whereas this made it more efficient.

ok it's back.
Thank you.

If you purchased a license and it still complains of being expired then please contact us ASAP (supportATaxtoolsDOTcom). Most probably you did not apply the authorization key correctly - we will help you with that as soon as you contact us.

Much handier than other popup methods of other toolkits. Great if you have a large screen. Definitely one worth checking out. Than you for this great little tool.

I m a registered user of your extension, and quite like it.
The only thing i would like to be able to change in the options is the tooltip that is showned to us on methods that show comments (and parameters if you open the control).

It's way to small and it goes on top of the normal tooltip..
I can only read a few words, but most of the times i want to read ALL the comments to see if i want to use that method (without having to open the "Form control" with the parameters etc...And even if i open the form to see parameter of a method, i get the parameters, but not the comment text of the method (which is what i wanted in the first place)...

Is it possible to get WORD Wrap on the comment of tooltip'ed methods (like Visual studio does it normally).

5/5, just missing this tooltip
Best regards

-----------Edit : Actually the tool tip isn't even from codeMap , so it's a 5/5!

Very useful and convenient

Love the latest tooltip addition, definitely deserves a 5 now. It would've gotten a 6 if it were free though.
On my notebook I have it docked right and on autohide and I quickly bring it into view with Ctrl+Shift+X for an overview of the code. Can't wait to do the same for bad old javascript

better if it's free but is a good work anyway. keep going!

Very nice...

Just GREAT (got no other words for it)!

Updating to 2.43 version on VS2010 caused VS error on menus opening, button presses:
System.Windows.Documents.Hyperlink is not a Visual or Visual3D

Had to run in safemode and uninstall codemap.

It's good that you add new functions, but overall quality gets lower and lower. Please freeze new features and make codemap stable, not alpha.

UPD: Thank you for response and sorry for a little aggressive comment.

安装过程一切都顺利,但是我无法代开.vb 文件了,每当我双击.vb文件,就会有一个msgbox告诉我:"没有用于'.....form1.vb'的编辑器,确保已安装文件类型(.vb)的应用程序"
我尝试了 devenv /resetuserdata (重置用户数据) ,禁用插件等方法,可是仍然不奏效.

Used google translate to try and understand your message. The problem you accuse is not related to Code Map.

by Medroidfan | December 22 2011

Had the same error as well:
System.Windows.Documents.Hyperlink is not a Visual or Visual3D
BUt after two restarts of VS it worked again.

Anyway I'm sad that this extension is not free anymore. So I will look for an alternative...

When did it happen? What was the dialog caption (i.e. was CodeMap complaining, or VS)? Any stack trace in the message? Being interested in a product is something more than just downloading it for free.

*UPDATE: Seems to be a VS / .NET Fwk issue when the last selected item was a hyperlink (like the "Visit" and "Close" hyperlinks in the "What's new" baloon). Anyway, workaround found, update coming soon.

**UPDATE 2: Version 2.44 available with the problem fixed.

by JeremyTang | December 14 2011

Hi Michael, great job with the tool - I have tried many alternatives and nothing compares.

My problem that I'm currently facing is related to performance issues. I have fairly large files, which necessitates the code map in the first place. However, I'm finding that I have to wait for it to literally freeze as I'm typing. Cutting and pasting large sections of code is problematic. I'm using this tool in conjunction with CodeRush. Perhaps there's a competing threads for the same resource? I find when I disable Code Map, it's fast and responsive again.

My question is, are there any settings that will improve performance?

** UPDATE - I found that disabling the highlight code addon part has increased performance significantly (again this is with using CodeRush).

** UPDATE 2 - last update on Dec 3rd, I believe has a memory leak (probably resource related), as now I'm consistently having windows complain that VStudio is low on memory.

*** UPDATE 3 - Looks good Michael, no problems so far!
