int GetProjectFilesInSolution(
	uint grfGetOpts,
	uint cProjects,
	string[] rgbstrProjectNames,
	out uint pcProjectsFetched


Type: System.UInt32
[in] Options for returning the array of solution projects. For a list of grfGetOpts values, see __VSGETPROJFILESFLAGS.
Type: System.UInt32
[in] Number of projects in the solution, based on the option specified for the grfGetOpts parameter.
Type: System.String[]
[out] Pointer to array of projects within the solution.
Type: System.UInt32
[out] Pointer to the number of project names placed in the array.

Return Value

Type: System.Int32
If the method succeeds, it returns S_OK. If it fails, it returns an error code.

COM Signature

From vsshell.idl:

HRESULT IVsSolution::GetProjectFilesInSolution(
   [in] ULONG cProjects,
   [out, size_is(cProjects), length_is(*pcProjectsFetched)] BSTR *rgbstrProjectNames,
   [out] ULONG *pcProjectsFetched

This method obtains the full paths of the projects in the solution and is useful for pre-load knowledge about projects. The project paths are returned in an array of BSTRs—the number of BSTRS in the array is returned in the pcProjectsFetched parameter. Pass in cProjects==0 and rgbstrProjectNames==null to obtain the number of BSTRS required in the pcProjectsFetched parameter. Use this information to dimension an array of the appropriate size.
