Description Alexander Jochum 2013-03-22 15:14:48 UTC
I used ProjectSolutionPad in my addin to get informations about the current selected projects/files and in MonoDevelop 3.x this wasn't a problem, even if I build my addin with references to an old MonoDevelop.Ide.dll file of MD 3.x I can access the ProjectSolutionPad without a problem.

My problem now is that if I set the references of my addin to a MonoDevelop.Ide.dll file of MD 4.x I can't compile my project as ProjectSolutionPad is missing at least it isn't public anymore (in MD 4.x source code it's still available).
Was it accidently made private?

At the moment I can use the following lines to get the TreeViewPad instead of ProjectSolutionPad which seems to work for my right now:

Pad temporaryPad = IdeApp.Workbench.GetPad<TreeViewPad>();

instead of

Pad temporaryPad = IdeApp.Workbench.GetPad<ProjectSolutionPad>();

It seems it was made internal, I'm not sure why.

That said, you probably should use IdeApp.ProjectOperations.CurrentSelectedProject instead of accessing the pad directly.

GetPad will be made private as it is too. As Michael said, you should use IdeApp.ProjectOperations.CurrentSelectedProject to get the current project. If you want to directly access the tree elements, use a NodeExtension.

I see, then I'll change my code as you suggested.
