Extend the visual appearance of the solution explorer RRS feed

  • Question

  • I want to extend the visual appearance of the solution explorer in VS 2013+ like the source control does or the power tools that add squiggly lines for indicating syntax errors. However, I could not find the APIs for doing that. The only thing I found is the UIHierarchy, which enables me to change the content of the tree, but not adding visual items. How would I do that?

    Best regards,
    Christoph

    >>The only thing I found is the UIHierarchy

    It only allow us to change the content of tree item. If you really want to add squiggly lines for indicating syntax errors. I think you need to create a Solution Explorer by yourself.
