Integration suggestions

Sep 24, 2012 at 7:39 AM

Hi,

I love this addin. Its what I missed a long time:

now its possible to compare different files with any diff tool that integrated into the context menu from within VisualStudio, like BeyondCompare or ExamDiffPro.

What I would suggest is to integrate this addIn also into:

- the solution explorer
- the TFS Source Control Explorer

Then this would be the perfect addIn !

Yeah, it's one of those "I'm sure someone else will write it" extensions.  But after waiting fo so long, I thought that people are just not interested enough in the feature, and decided to learn how to do it myself..

Solution explorer is definitely in the to-do list.  I'd need to do some work to figure out which part of the UI is currently active (code or solution explorer) first.

But before that, I need to figure out why it keeps throwing an exception on random files (consistently, but then magically starts working perfectly when I came back to it a bit later..)

As for TFS explorer, it's not even in my radar currently, as I don't use TFS (well, I do, but through a git-tfs bridge as I'm offline from the TFS server most of the time).  Feel free to contribute! :)

Big up vote for integration into the right click menu in solution explorer.

Would save a ton of time there (so you don't have to open the file to get at the context menu).

Thanks for the great extension!

Solution Explorer context menu in v1.1.

Haven't had a chance to test it too extensively, but works well enough for the whole day I was using it. Thought I'd release it anyway and let the public test :)

CoolX extension worked for me!
