How to publish and raise DTE.Events.SolutionItemsEvents? RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • Hi all,

    I am implementing a project type based on http://mpfproj10.codeplex.com/.

    I find that when I subscribe to DTE.Events.SolutionItemsEvents.ItemAdded/ItemRemoved, I am not actually notified when project items are added or removed. Do I have to raise these events myself in the MPF and how?

    Thank you all.

  • Events.SolutionEvents contains ProjectAdded and ProjectRemoved

  • for Project Item added/removed/renamed you should go this way 

    Web Projects/VCProjects has its own objects so this is for no web/vcprojects:

    EnvDTE80.Events2 events2    = (EnvDTE80.Events2VsObject.DTE.Events;

    EnvDTE.ProjectItemsEvents_dteProjectItemEvents2 = events2.ProjectItemsEvents;

  • Dear Mathias,

    I would like to publish ProjectItemsEvents so that other users can subscribe to, not to subscribe these events myself. Thank you.

  • Hi VS Anywhere,

    I tries these events (DTE2.Events2.ProjectItemsEvents). They do not work for the project type I created with MPF. I think I have to publish and raise these events myself. I do not figure out how to.

  • Hum, i'm not sure of what you're trying to do.

    Could you please describe the use case ?


    EDIT : Have you created your own project type ?? And you want that env dte gets notified when your project has been added ? If it is a flavored project, there won't be any problems. If nota flavoured project, i've never tried to deal with this, so i don't know if it works with env dte

    I understand now the problem. But you have to know that when you add a project (MPF or classic), this does not raise a itemadded event, but a projectadded event. I'm currenlty working with my own project implementation, and this works well with the correct events i mentionned. ItemsAdded are for other kind of files, not projects

    Use : 


    Not :
