VSConstants.UICONTEXT_SolutionExists Field

Packages may define a command that is associated with a change in UI context. Use UICONTEXT_SolutionExists to return the GUID of the command associated with this UI state. In this case the UI context is that a solution exists, though the number of projects loaded is not pertinent to this call.

This field is not CLS-compliant.  

Namespace: Microsoft.VisualStudio
Assembly: Microsoft.VisualStudio.Shell (in

Public Shared ReadOnly UICONTEXT_SolutionExists As Guid
Dim value As Guid

value = VSConstants.UICONTEXT_SolutionExists

public static final Guid UICONTEXT_SolutionExists
public static final var UICONTEXT_SolutionExists : Guid

A successful call to GetCmdUIContextCookie with UICONTEXT_SolutionExists as the first parameter returns the GUID value of the command UI context associated with this specific UI state.

The new UI context (which in this case is UICONTEXT_SolutionExists) may be retrieved with a call to OnCmdUIContextChanged

This method is not valid (will return E_FAIL) when the IDE is in Command Line Mode.
