  • Question

  • Is there such a thing (extension, add-in) for either VS 2013 or VS 2015 - that lets me see all project references in a richer way than the basic list shown in solution explorer?

    A reference can be either:

    1. To another project

    2. To a selected file on disk

    3. To a NuGet package.

    4. To a file selected from the "Add Reference" dialog (which itself is involved, that list is NOT populated from the GAC)

    Having a richer way of seeing references and easily seeing which category they're in etc would be a great help, especially with huge solutions with many projects each accessing differing versions of assemblies or NuGet packages.

    I found an extension "Accurate References" but it doesnt target VS 2013 or later..

    Thx

    Korp.

    I can't found any exist extensions until now. Maybe you could create a question on Accurate References page. Maybe he will kindly upgrade this extension.
