How-To Solution Files With VSFileNav

CodePlex - VSFileNav

Description

A simple visual studio tool to allow rapid navigation and finding of files within a Solution via a number of search patterns.

Features & Benefits

  • Name Search - Searches based upon the name of a file by simply using mixed-case search string.
  • Wildcard Search - Use standard windows wildcards : ? (any character) or * (number of any characters).
  • Camel Case Search - Use uppercase strings to do Camel case searching on file names.
  • Highlighting - Filtering as you type with match highlighting.
  • Explore To - Use Alt+E to explore to a result.

The extension can be found in the Edit->Find and Replace menu. It only loads when first used so it won't touch your Visual Studio performance. It may take a couple of seconds for large solutions to cache all the file information when used for the first time.

This is not a code search but an extension to make finding specific files quick and easy. This is something I need to use all the time...Installed (And if you just want the vsix, you can get it via the Visual Studio Gallery here, VSFileNav)
