VS 2013 Extending: managing class from an item RRS feed

  • Question

  • What I'm trying to do it's, i think, kinda complex, but i've spent hours trying to find the right documentation, about the interfaces I need to achieve this with no luck:
    I need VS write some javascript code and insert it in a certain folder, starting from:

    • Right click action, on a file from an already created project.
    • A window it's open that gets information about the functions from that class in that file that i've right clicked. Besides, it should have a dropdown, with all the names of classes that reside under a certain folder.
    • If I select an item from this dd and press the "ok" button, the IDE should write some code, using the properties of this selected class, and the functions from the right-clicked file, as information, to create the javascript file and save it into the project on a certain folder of it.

    I've achieved some parts of this process:

    • I know how to create an option into a context menu, using the initialize function.
    • Partially, I know how to create new files in a project.
    • I know how to create a window tool and almost all the interfaces that are needed for what I want to achieve (make dropdowns and that kind of stuff).

    But the critical part is managing the already created classes and gather info from them in the manner I need.

  • Hi Oliver,

    >>managing the already created classes and gather info from them

    You could get class information from CodeClass2 inferface.

  • thank you very much. I was checking the interface. it looks pretty good because I use DTE to have a reference of the VS running instance. I'll be testing it and i'll comment if was useful. Maybe I'll publish my package :D thank you again Li Wang
