Projects and Solutions

Visual Studio for Mac provides a Solution Pad to display a tree view of the entire open solution that allows easy access to source code, resources, user interfaces, and assembly references contained in individual Projects. The Solution Pad, by default, opens one solution at a time. Each Solution can include many projects, and each project can contain many items.

Using Projects and Solutions

To create a new Project or Solution, refer to the Creating new Projects and Solutions topic.

Project and Solution Options

You can manage the properties of both projects and solutions by either double-clicking on the Project/Solution name, or by right-clicking and browsing to Options. More information on these options are provided in the Managing Solutions and Project Properties topic.
