You can use the ItemOperations object to programmatically open or add items to your solution and projects. Note that ItemOperations methods act upon only the currently selected item.

This example uses the ItemOperations object to generate a text document listing all available command names.


Sub ItemOperationsExample()
   Dim Cmds As Commands = DTE.Commands
   Dim Cmd As Command
   Dim Doc As Document
   Dim TxtDoc As TextDocument

   DTE.ItemOperations.NewFile("General\Text File")
   Doc = ActiveDocument
   TxtDoc = Doc.Object("TextDocument")

   For Each Cmd In Cmds
      If (Cmd.Name <> "") Then
         TxtDoc.Selection.Text = Cmd.Name & vbLf
      End If
End Sub
