System_CAPS_pubpropertySaved

Gets or sets a value indicating whether a solution has not been modified since last being saved or opened.

System_CAPS_pubpropertySolutionBuild

Gets the SolutionBuild object for the solution, which represents the root of the build automation model at the solution level.

System_CAPS_pubpropertyTemplatePath[String]

Superseded by GetProjectTemplate.

NameDescription
System_CAPS_pubmethodAddFromFile(String, Boolean)

Adds a project to the solution that is based on a project file already stored in the system.

System_CAPS_pubmethodAddFromTemplate(String, String, String, Boolean)

Copies an existing project file, and any items or subdirectories it contains, to the specified location and adds it to the solution.

System_CAPS_pubmethodAddSolutionFolder(String)

Adds a solution folder to a ProjectItems collection.

System_CAPS_pubmethodClose(Boolean)

Closes the current solution.

System_CAPS_pubmethodCreate(String, String)

Creates an empty solution in the specified directory with the specified name.

System_CAPS_pubmethodFindProjectItem(String)

Locates an item in a project.

System_CAPS_pubmethodGetProjectItemTemplate(String, String)

Returns a path to the indicated project item template.

System_CAPS_pubmethodGetProjectTemplate(String, String)

Returns a path to the indicated 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");.

System_CAPS_pubmethodItem(Object)

Returns an indexed member of a Projects collection.

System_CAPS_pubmethodOpen(String)

Opens a specified solution.

System_CAPS_pubmethodProjectItemsTemplatePath(String)

System_CAPS_pubmethodRemove(Project)

Removes the specified project from the solution.

System_CAPS_pubmethodSaveAs(String)

Saves the solution.

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

You can find the open solution by using the DTE.Solution property. To refer to virtual projects, such as MiscFiles or SolutionItems, use Solution.Item(EnvDTE.Constants.vsProjectKindMisc or Solution.Item(EnvDTE.Constants.vsProjectKindSolutionItems.
