Did you know… You can create folders to organize your objects and methods within the Class View? – #347


Happy Halloween! Here’s a picture of me and Beth Massi (i’ll let you guess which is which) at her annual Halloween party. An unsuspecting Agent Smith showed up, but he didn’t know martial arts, which was anti-climatic consider this Trinity does.

One difference between the Class View and the Object Browser is the way to create “custom component sets” in Object Browser speak. In the Class View, you can quickly click on the folder icon to create a folder to store both objects and methods.

Class View New Folder

now you can drag both objects into the folder, as shown below

Object shown in the New Folder 1

but you can also drag individual methods (i discovered this one by accident to see what would happen).

And to state the obvious, since that’s what i do, you can double click a method to jump straight to it in code (if it is a part of your solution; otherwise, if a part of the framework, it’ll jump into the object browser).

    Great tip Sara (and great costume (and an even great pouting pose!)).

    When reading this, I thought what a great feature, but then thought of the churn that would occur in the either the project file or solution file.

    Turns out that it’s stores in the .suo file!  Which is nice.

    Thanks again.
