Working with solutions

Visual Studio Extensibility Cookbook

Here’s a collection of small code samples on different ways to work with solutions.

Solution events

Listen to any solution event.

VS.Events.SolutionEvents.OnAfterOpenProject += OnAfterOpenProject;


private void OnAfterOpenProject(Project obj)
    // Handle the event

Is a solution open?

Check if a solution is currently open or opening.

bool isOpen = await VS.Solutions.IsOpenAsync();
bool isOpening = await VS.Solutions.IsOpeningAsync();

Get all projects in solution

Get a list of all projects in the solution.

var projects = await VS.Solutions.GetAllProjectsAsync();
