The following is the message from andrewbrown:


I stumbled upon StudioShell this morning.  It looks nice.  There was one capability I was looking for but didn't immediately see -- can I get to projects' properties using StudioShell?  Namely, I'd like to see the set of #defines that have been set for C# and C++ projects.  

One wrinkle - I'm on Visual Studio 2008, so my C++ projects are still vcbuild-based.  

I saw that I could navigate to a node like this:


MyProject\Source Files\MySource.cpp\Properties

...but once I got there, I didn't find I do much of anything with the contents of that "folder".


Thanks for the inquiry.  Project properties go hand-in-hand with build
configs, and I'm looking into adding support for those at the moment.
The reason they're not already in there is that the C++ build config
is fairly expansive, and you know.  The configuration space is divided
into several tools (compiler,linker,resource linker, etc) that need to
be modeled, it was just too much work for the initial release.

Mind if I move this email to the feature request board on codeplex?
That way people can upvote it...

Thanks again,

At least, accessing the properties via $dte should work, via $dte.Solution.Projects.Item(1).Object.Configurations

But it looks misfunctional :(
