Public propertyIsOpenGets whether a solution is open.
Public propertyParentGets the immediate parent object of a Solution2 object.
Public propertyProjectsGets a collection of the projects currently in the solution.
Public propertyPropertiesGets a collection of all properties that pertain to the Solution2 object.
Public propertySavedGets or sets a value indicating whether a solution has not been modified since last being saved or opened.

  NameDescription
Public methodAddFromFileAdds a project to the solution that is based on a project file already stored in the system.
Public methodAddFromTemplateCopies an existing project file, and any items or subdirectories it contains, to the specified location and adds it to the solution.
Public methodAddSolutionFolderAdds a solution folder to a ProjectItems collection.
Public methodCloseCloses the current solution.
Public methodCreateCreates an empty solution in the specified directory with the specified name.
Public methodFindProjectItemLocates an item in a project.
Public methodGetEnumeratorReturns an enumeration for items in a collection.
Public methodGetProjectItemTemplateReturns a path to the indicated project item template.
Public methodGetProjectItemTemplatesReturns a collection of project item templates for the specified project.
Public methodGetProjectTemplateReturns a path to the specified project template.If a template has a RequiredFrameworkVersion element higher than 4.0, you should provide the version in the call so that the search for the template will find a match. For example, instead of calling GetProjectTemplate("Extensibility\\1033\\VSIXProject.zip", "CSharp"); call GetProjectTemplate("Extensibility\\1033\\VSIXProject.zip|FrameworkVersion=4.5", "CSharp");.
Public methodItemReturns an indexed member of a Projects collection.
Public methodOpenOpens a specified solution.
Public methodProjectItemsTemplatePathSuperseded by GetProjectItemTemplate.
Public methodRemoveRemoves the specified project from the solution.
Public methodSaveAsSaves the solution.

The Solution3 object is a collection of all projects in the current instance of the IDE and all solution-wide properties, such as build configurations. The Solution3 object contains a project element for every project, whether it is a wrapped project, a subproject, or a top-level project.

Reference this object by using DTE.Solution. To refer to virtual projects, such as MiscFiles or SolutionItems, use Solution3.Item(EnvDTE.Constants.vsProjectKindMisc) or Solution3.Item(EnvDTE.Constants.vsProjectKindSolutionItems).
