Disable built-in Progress Window RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I have a custom language service where I also implemented a custom "progress window" for time-consuming operations. This works well, I can successfully display and hide this window using the IVsThreadedWaitDialog2 interface.

    However, if you load or reload a project, Visual Studio itself displays a Progress window stating something like "Loading solution projects...". This window hides my own, and is disturbing. I'd really prefer to use my own window in order to provide the information I want to the user. Is there any way to get rid of this built-in progress window?

  • AFAIK you can't, it's by design for the IDE itself, also there's no such service behind VS to get the progress dialog object msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb165789.aspx
