Hi guys!

I'm searching for an add-in that will pair the cpp/h files within the same Filter 'Folder' in the solution explorer.

 

Something like this:

 

-My Filer Blah

---SomeFileName1.cpp

---SomeFilename1.h

---SomeFileName2.cpp

---SomeFilename2.h

 

To become something like this

 

-My Filer Blah

+++SomeFileName1(h/cpp)

+++SomeFileName2(h/cpp)

I don't know of any. But why do you want this? You can use ctrl-comma to search for files by name and a key combination to switch between header and source (I don't recall the default; for my setup it's alt-k,alt-o). The usual organization of sources vs headers in visual studio is usually more than enough once you learn the other navigation features.

AFAIK, those groupings are saved into the vcproj file. If you're using something like CMake to create your projects, you could configure it to do it ;)

Otherwise, a key to switch between cpp/h might be useful as mentioned above. I don't know if newer versions of VS support it natively - years ago I just searched google and c&p'ed a macro that someone else had made to add that feature ;)

Yeah Ctr + K/O is the shortcut for vs13! But sometimes I need a to look at the picture from afar.

 

PS: @ SeanMiddleditch

 

I Prefer to hit Ctrl + D and type ">of myFile" don't know why :D
