It works well and makes things easy.

one command that was really useful for me (especially for large projects) was the collapse all :)

Excellent plug-in however at the moment it's got a problem with detecting changes to the solution, which means that i have to close the solution and then re-open it. It defeats the purpose of having the reload all projects setting (which is awesome).

SA1516: Adjacent C# elements are not separated by a blank line.

Enjoy using this plugin. It is a bit kitchen sinky and mucks with color settings that do not work well with Resharper at times. The biggest benefit is the support for one click project reload when doing git branch changes.

I've been using this extension for over a year now. Upgraded to Pro version recently and I wish I had done it earlier, it saves so much time!
Can't wait for all the features to be available in Visual Studio 2012 version.

Great tool

Our team is using it for cross platform development by code sharing mostly with links (Copy paste as link)...

Few ideas (web site is not working):
1. Folders copy + paste as link
2. Dependency def for files for grouping like Windows Forms or Xaml



Hi Jarek

Few more!!!! (We are currently porting few Windows CE apps to MonoTouch
and Mono for Android, so this is from our experience:
3. partialize - exsisting class split into 2 files, old and new one + add
partial keyword in both files
4. add partial code - for existing partial class just add empty partial
Class.cs -> Class.partial.cs
5. Override copy/paste behaviour of VS
not: Class.cs -> Copy of Class.cs
but: Class.cs -> Class copy 01.cs (otherwise it reorders classes and
dev needs to navigate in Solution explorer to renamed file)
6. Copy as link is maybe too much (not sure)
Copy + Paste or Paste-as-Link

Hi again!

I'm glad I could suggest. When could we expect some of those changes?

The speed of this addin is terrible. Uninstalled for good.

Hi John,
If any feature is having performance issues then you can easily disable if from Tools | VSCommands | Options. All features can be disabled in this way. It would also be great if you could provide bit more details about speed problems (which action/feature is slowing you down) so I can try to fix it. Just email jarek@squaredinfinity.com.

Thank you in advance,

Es muy util, me gusta mucho la facilidad que me brinda para programar.

by James Schubert | July 15 2012

This is one of my favorite extensions. A lot of people complain about it being a trial. It is a free (light) version for which a license can unlock additional features. I used it for quite some time for free until I started my most recent position and decided to upgrade to the premium version to unlock a few of the extra features. It's well worth it, if you ask me.

A note to reviewers giving it a bad review because it's a 'trial': you're all developers, show a little respect. If you don't know the difference between free software and freemium software, you're probably in the wrong field. If you're going to rate it low, rate it because of the actual product and not because you want something for nothing.

  • Detecting Solution Modicifications
    1 Posts | Last post April 08, 2013
    • If the solution file is changed, the current VSCommands is not detecting that. So if the solution changes you need to close and reopen it.
      Are you able to fix that?
  • Open command prompt missing
    1 Posts | Last post February 18, 2013
    • Hi,
      I am missing command 'Open command prompt' feature in Solution explorer in VS2012. It is present in VSCommands in VS 2010.
  • File Structure & C++
    3 Posts | Last post January 30, 2013
    • Is it intentional that every time I navigate to a different file the File Structure window says Not Supported until I press refresh? This is in VS2012 with .cpp files and .h files?
    • Oops, also in wrong place. meant for 2012
    • Err, have to bite my tounge again. It's actually in VS2010 not 2012.
  • closing brace code segment text color?
    1 Posts | Last post January 30, 2013
    • 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.
  • "More Information" link in VS Extension Manager
    1 Posts | Last post December 14, 2012
    • 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
  • File Structure Fails with Nullable Types
    1 Posts | Last post December 10, 2012
    • This prevents file structure from displaying:
      Public Class Class2
          Friend Shared Sub GetMe(sysId As DateTime?, handler As [Delegate])
          End Sub
      End Class
      Nullable(of Datetime) seems to work, but the question mark breaks it.
