Sub ListProj()
   Dim proj As Project = DTE.ActiveSolutionProjects(0)
   Dim win As Window = _
     DTE.Windows.Item(Constants.vsWindowKindCommandWindow)
   ListProjAux(proj.ProjectItems(), 0)
End Sub

Sub ListProjAux(ByVal projitems As ProjectItems, ByVal Level As Integer)
   Dim projitem As ProjectItem
   For Each projitem In projitems
      MsgBox("Project item: " & projitem.Name, Level)
      ' Recurse if the project item has sub-items...
