    [Add-In] Large Project Organiser (alternative Project Explorer)

    Undeterred by the lukewarm reception of my tab-Strip Add-In , here I am with another one. Gotta fill-up those lock-down days doing something, eh?

    This one is thought as a replacement for the built-in Project Explorer, and may be useful to somebody who is working with a large project. The idea (and not an original one!) is that you can organise your projects into something more meaningful than simply a list of Component Types: As illustrated below, create appropriate Groups and drag/drop into those

    Overview




    Cloning

    And one is not limited to doing this on a one-to-one basis, either. Here I am cloning an item into more than one Group (via the CTRL key), just to show that that's possible, too:





    Ordering

    And, finally, one can order the Groups, however they see fit....



    Download

    ...and here's the code:

    If anyone else stumbles on this like I did, I'll save you some time: Colin posted an updated version in this thread and just didn't update the link here.

    I really love this, the ide absolutely needs grouping,

    The tiles are an interesting approach and work really well. I can see the appeal in that multiple items can be displayed on one line for compactness.
    A little torn though, the compactness makes it take longer to scan to find the target.

    The option of using a treeview would be nice if you ever experiment with any alternative displays models. Another thought would be to add a search or filter form to highlight entries.

    great work thanks for sharing.
