Get item under cursor in Solution Explorer RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    Is it possible that I can get the item under the mouse pointer from Solution Explorer window? I would like to display a MessageBox when user moves his mouse pointer under an item (a .cs file, a assembly under References, or a Project).

    Also, I would like to know the properties of the item under it - For example, I would like to know whether item under mouse pointer is a Csharp file and its properties. Is it possible?

  • No, the shell has a concept of selection, but that occurs when you click on an item, not simply hover over it.
