This small extension will prevent the tool window with title "No Source Available" from appearing in Visual Studio, and preserve the focus on the currently active tab.
Alas, along with brilliant improvements such as IntelliTrace, Visual Studio otherwise displays a tab stating...
This is the second time I've installed this awesome extension.
Both times, I've tried to make a donation, but the thing won't take donations from me because I am in the U.S.A. (former colony) and it requires me to pick a County from the U.K. Now my conscience won't let me rest until this injustice is taken care of.
Thanks for your 5-star rating, this is much appreciated! I was able to avoid the County issue by entering an amount to be donated before switching the country. I will try to add a default amount to fix this. Thanks for reporting this bug and your kind support!
After installing this extension - I was no longer able to edit during debug.
Error: Changes not allowed when unmanaged debugging is allowed.
I have since uninstalled the extension. How do I enable editing during debugging?
In this source file: http://disablenosourcetab.codeplex.com/SourceControl/latest#DisableNoSourceAvailableTab/DisableNoSourceAvailableTabPackage.vb
you can see that the only thing this extension does is removing an event handler which target type name is "NoSourceToolWindowAdapter". This should not have side effects such as the one you describe.
To enable editing during debugging if it has been disabled, you can try following the steps explained here:
i have vs2010 express and vs2012 installed, i wanted your extension installed for the vs2010 but after installing it, vs2010 still the same, it said installed for 2012 but never detected vs2010 install
The latest version release states: "Removed the option to specify extra tab titles to be closed automatically as this is no longer needed. The feature can be reintroduced if some people still find a use for it."
I work on a solution that is designed in such a way that every time I break in code, a module named "ConsoleHost.cs" appears exactly like the "No Source Available" tab. Does that help?
Thanks. I plan to wait for the official release of VS11, in the mean time you can try downloading the source, the VS11 SDK, and maybe modify a few things to make it work (could be just changing the "supported versions" in the package configuration).
Not certain yet, but I may want to uninstall this. As pesky as the other screen was, now I'm getting a huge number of "Step into: Stepping over non-user code *" messages when I'm debugging and stepping through code. Is there any way of avoiding those steps? If not, can you please tell me how to uninstall this tool? Thanks for your help!
Hello, I have never encountered the behaviour you mention. It may be due to your debug configuration. It is normal that these messages appear in the immediate window, though.
To uninstall the extension, in Visual Studio, simply go to Tools > Extensions Manager and select the appropriate option there.
Hello Nick, thanks for your comment, however I cannot replicate the behavior you mention.
Do you mean pressing "Pause", then "Play", and then "Pause" again?
Do you use any other extension that might interfere with the process?
Have you tested with another project? Which language/project type is it (Console/Winforms)?
I'm using VB. I just installed VS2010 so no other extensions are installed.
The first time i pause the project (VS.NET 2008 solution with 3 projects in it, 1 winforms and 2 usercontrols, imported and converted to VS.NET 2010), the window does not appear. If i press play then pause again, the window appears. Stopping the project and restarting it has no effect, the window still appears. Only closing and reopening VS IDE makes the extension work again (once). Sometimes it does not even work the first time.
The only thing i've done is change some IDE settings (can't remember all of them i'm afraid).
Great tool i would love to use it myzelf but saldy i cant get installed i get an error saying "This extension is not installable on any currently installed products", i use visual studio 2010 express, while the extension managher oes work and i cna look in the gallery it cannot find this extension. so it does not work on the express edition it seems
