Remarks

This interface contains a collection of all projects in the current instance of the IDE and all solution-wide properties, such as build configurations. It contains a project element for every project, whether it is a wrapped project, a subproject, or a top-level project.

You can find the open solution by using the DTE.Solution property. To refer to virtual projects, such as MiscFiles or SolutionItems, use Solution.Item(EnvDTE.Constants.vsProjectKindMisc or Solution.Item(EnvDTE.Constants.vsProjectKindSolutionItems.

Adds a project to the solution that is based on a project file already stored in the system.

AddFromTemplate(String, String, String, Boolean) AddFromTemplate(String, String, String, Boolean) AddFromTemplate(String, String, String, Boolean) AddFromTemplate(String, String, String, Boolean) AddFromTemplate(String, String, String, Boolean) AddFromTemplate(String, String, String, Boolean)

Copies an existing project file, and any items or subdirectories it contains, to the specified location and adds it to the solution.

AddSolutionFolder(String) AddSolutionFolder(String) AddSolutionFolder(String) AddSolutionFolder(String) AddSolutionFolder(String) AddSolutionFolder(String)

Adds a solution folder to a ProjectItems collection.

Close(Boolean) Close(Boolean) Close(Boolean) Close(Boolean) Close(Boolean) Close(Boolean)

Closes the current solution.

Create(String, String) Create(String, String) Create(String, String) Create(String, String) Create(String, String) Create(String, String)

Creates an empty solution in the specified directory with the specified name.

FindProjectItem(String) FindProjectItem(String) FindProjectItem(String) FindProjectItem(String) FindProjectItem(String) FindProjectItem(String)

Locates an item in a project.

GetEnumerator() GetEnumerator() GetEnumerator() GetEnumerator() GetEnumerator() GetEnumerator()

Returns an enumeration for items in a collection.

GetProjectItemTemplate(String, String) GetProjectItemTemplate(String, String) GetProjectItemTemplate(String, String) GetProjectItemTemplate(String, String) GetProjectItemTemplate(String, String) GetProjectItemTemplate(String, String)

GetProjectTemplate(String, String) GetProjectTemplate(String, String) GetProjectTemplate(String, String) GetProjectTemplate(String, String) GetProjectTemplate(String, String) GetProjectTemplate(String, String)

Returns a path to the indicated project template.

If a template has a RequiredFrameworkVersion element higher than 4.0, you should provide the version in the call so that the search for the template will find a match. For example, instead of calling GetProjectTemplate("Extensibility\1033\VSIXProject.zip", "CSharp"); call GetProjectTemplate("Extensibility\1033\VSIXProject.zip|FrameworkVersion=4.5", "CSharp");.

Item(Object) Item(Object) Item(Object) Item(Object) Item(Object) Item(Object)

Returns an indexed member of a Projects collection.
