Addin to create the Dependent Upon Add-in


When you use Visual Studio .Net, sometimes you want to separate the class to many files, and put those to a group like the way I do with InputForm. The class InputForm is separated to 3 files: Heheh.cs, InputForm.Designer.cs and InputForm.resx. However the Visual Studio .Net doesn't support any function or macro to do this

You can do this by open the project file by notepad and group those files by the tag <DependentUpon>. However it isn't convenient, isn't it

This link give a solution for this case but there isn't any completed solution


I think you like this article even though you are the C# beginer.

Using the code

You can download the source code and rebuild it, then use Add-in Manager of Visual Studio .Net to attach this add-in to a tool bar button.

If you can't use this source, you can create a new C# add-in project, then copy the file InputForm.Designer.cs and InputForm.resx to your project, then copy 2 function: Exec,AddFileToProject in file Connect.cs to your Connect.cs file. Finally, please rebuild the project, use Add-in Manager to enjoy it

Points of Interest

Did you learn anything interesting/fun/annoying while writing the code? Did you do anything particularly clever or wild or zany?
