The Solution object is a collection of all the projects in the current instance of the IDE and all solution-wide properties such as build configurations. The Solution 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 Solution.Item(EnvDTE.Constants.) or Solution.Item(EnvDTE.Constants. ).
This example works only in Visual Studio .NET 2003. For more information, see.
