Visual Studio Add-in that eases the access to files in large projects.
This add-in allow you to find files easily in large projects. The files are listed in a new window where you can type a few letters to narrow the list and open the file(s) you’re interested.
It decreases considerably the file access time comparing to Solution Explorer where you may have to scroll and possibly open some “folders” to find the files.
There are some options to configure this add-in: exclude or highlight different files, tooltips’ configuration, project filter and regular expressions.
Many of these improvement ideas came from Diogo. Some of these were already integrated with the official 1.3 version. This is an updated version with support for Visual Studio 2008.
Changes from original version
- Added wildcards and regular expression support to search. (Wildcards are on by default.)
- Added a project filter.
- It is possible to turn on/off, add a timeout or show tooltips with the complete name of the file.
- Fixed possible bug in tooltips that don’t go away.
VSFileFinder 2008 is a free add-in, use it at your own risk. The authors can not be held responsible if anything wrong happens when using this add-in.
Again, this add-in was not made by me. I just added some features to the original.
