Show Coverage in Visual Studio Solution Explorer
I think it would be really useful to show the amount of code coverage, perhaps as a circular progress bar, next to each file name in solution explorer. I always am looking at Solution Explorer as I'm working and navigating files and to have code coverage integrated directly would be really convenient.
Not sure if this is possible but I'm hoping recent VS changes made in 2013 and/or 2015 might make it possible to extend the built-in solution explorer window to allow this. Any idea if VS can be extended in such a manner?
As awesome as it would be to have this feature, I have to admit that I don't think it's ever going to be feasible to implement.
With Microsoft releasing a new major version of VS every 18-24 months, every area of NCrunch that requires close integration with VS is very expensive to maintain. Most of the effort spent on NCrunch over the last few years has been on compatibility and integration work; basically just keeping the product up to date with all the changes happening in the stack underneath it.
Such close integration with the explorer window would be expensive to implement and maintain. This would only really be worthwhile if Microsoft's further development of VS ceased entirely, and of course there's no way that will happen.
