How to: List Current Keyboard Shortcut Mappings
Use this procedure to create a macro that generates a list of all the commands in the integrated development environment (IDE) and any shortcut keys mapped to those commands according to the current keyboard mapping scheme.
Several keyboard mapping schemes are available in the IDE. You can change keyboard mapping schemes on the Keyboard page, under the Environment folder of the Options dialog box. For more information, see How to: Work with Shortcut Key Combinations.
The dialog boxes and menu commands you see might differ from those described in Help depending on your active settings or edition. To change your settings, click Import and Export Settings on the Tools menu. For more information, see Visual Studio Settings.
To list current keyboard shortcut mappings
On the Tools menu, point to Macros, and then click Macros IDE.
In Project Explorer, double-click MyMacros.
Right-click Module1 and then click Rename.
Type KeyboardShortcuts as the new name for the module.
Double-click KeyboardShortcuts to open the file in the editor.
Paste the following code in the file after Public Module KeyboardShortcuts:
Sub GetAllCommands() Dim getCommandsWithSCOnly As Boolean Dim cmd As Command Dim cmdCollection As Commands Dim ow As OutputWindow = DTE.Windows.Item(Constants.vsWindowKindOutput).Object Dim owp As OutputWindowPane Dim exists As Boolean Dim i As Integer i = 1 exists = False For Each owp In ow.OutputWindowPanes If owp.Name = "Macro Output" Then exists = True Exit For End If i = i + 1 Next If exists Then owp = ow.OutputWindowPanes.Item(i) Else owp = ow.OutputWindowPanes.Add("Macro Output") End If owp.Clear() ' Output 1 line per command For Each cmd In DTE.Commands Dim binding As Object Dim shortcuts As String shortcuts = "" For Each binding In cmd.Bindings Dim b As String Dim sArray() As String b = binding shortcuts = shortcuts + b + " " Next shortcuts = shortcuts.Trim() If Not cmd.Name.Trim().Equals("") Then owp.OutputString(cmd.Name + vbTab + shortcuts + vbCrLf) Else owp.OutputString(cmd.Guid.ToString() + ":" + cmd.ID.ToString() + vbTab + shortcuts + vbCrLf) End If Next End Sub
On the File menu, click Save MyMacros.
Switch back to Visual Studio.
On the Tools menu, point to Macros and then click Macro Explorer.
Expand MyMacros and then expand KeyboardShortcuts.
Right-click GetAllCommands and then click Run.
The macro generates a list of all possible commands in the IDE and any keyboard shortcut mappings these commands have in the current keyboard mapping scheme.
On the View menu, click Output.
Commands and their shortcut key combinations appear in the Output window. You can copy this information and paste it into another application, such as Microsoft Office Excel, for additional formatting and printing options.
