New version of my AddIn…

BrowseCurrentFile.jpgI just put a new version of my addin on my web site (for a first introduction see this post). Here are the major changes (apart from bug fixing):

  • Browse current file: Methods now show signatures
  • Browse current file: Generics shown correctly
  • Browse (all): Support of progress bar
  • Browse (all): Persistent window size
  • AddIn: first tests under Vista

There is currently an issue under vista with language packs. Menu icons are not shown and shortcut keys are not assigned.

Obviously MS has changed the loading scheme of the resource DLL — I need to fix that, once I get an idea how to do that). They also made the same mistake the once made with localized VBA languages (remember your VBA keywords being translated from IF-THEN-ELSE to WENN-DANN-SONST?). Now they translate the key codes (“Ctrl-Up Arrow” to “Strg-NACH-OBEN-TASTE”) as well as the commands. Can you believe that?

Anyway, I took care that the AddIn works, but nothing more. The missing icons are no vital part. Regarding shortcuts you need to assign them manually until I have fixed that issue. 

I think I have addressed some of the feedback I got (if only in the FAQ help page). Other feedback has been placed on my todo list (including flattened presentation, i.e. a list control rather than a tree control for browse).

I hope you enjoy it.

That’s all for now folks,

kick it on DotNetKicks.com



  1. Tja, manche Dinge kommen einem verdammt bekannt vor wenn es sie ca. ein Jahr zuvor schon gab: http://www.tom-mue.de/MyBlog/PermaLink,guid,31e3804e-5f16-4fae-a2e8-b7272135bde5.aspx

  2. Sorry wenn ich Dich enttäusche, aber Dein AddIn kannte ich noch nicht. Die Idee an sich ist aber nun auch wirklich nicht auf Kolumbus angewiesen und durchaus älter als “ca. ein Jahr” — schau einfach mal bei http://www.jetbrains.com/resharper/features/NavSearch.html vorbei.

  3. Servus,
    des wor jetzt ach net so als Vorwurf gemeint 😉 Mehr nach dem Motto zwei Dum… ein Gedanke. Jetbrains kenn ich auch aus eigenen Projekten. Die bremmsen mir das VS2005 zu sehr aus.

    Ich finde Dein Add-in sehr viel ausgereifter als mein Eigenes zu diesem Thema! Vielleicht kann man sich ja mal austauschen.

    “Freundschaftsangebot” (*gaaanz breit grins*)
