Pop up a wizard right after opening a certain project type RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I'd like to know if there is a way for popping up a wizard (of my own)  - an addin, right after opening a certain project type?

    Let's say that the user opens a web application, then I'd like a wizard to guide him through some steps.

    Is this can be done?

    It's quite urgent, thanks in advance,

  • You could do this with an add-in. But I'm not sure I'd recommend it. What happens when they open the project again? Do you want the wizard to run again? Do you want the wizard to pop up only when a particular project type (like a web project) is opened?

    If you're looking for a one-time scenario, a better solution would be to implement a project template with a custom IWizard implementation. Then you could display your wizard UI from either your IWizard.ProjectFinishedGenerating or IWizard.RunFinished implementation.
