The Plug-in Manager options page enables you to manage CodeRush Classic plug-ins.
The installed plug-ins are listed in a table that has the following structure:
|Assembly Type||The read-only field that shows the plug-in assembly type. The available types are PlugIn and SystemPlugIn. SystemPlugIn assemblies have higher loading priority than PlugIn assemblies.|
|Assembly Name||The read-only field that shows the assembly name.|
|Load Type||Specifies the plug-in load type. The field can have one of the following values: StartUp - plug-in is loaded at Visual Studio startup; Idle - plug-in is loaded at Visual Studio idle; Demand - plug-in is loaded when it’s functions are called by any item listed in the tree view to the right of the table. Default - the default value is Demand.|
|Load State||The read-only field that indicates whether the plug-in assembly is loaded to the memory. If the plug-in is unloaded, you can load it immediately. Just click the button. Plug-ins cannot be unloaded during a Visual Studio session. To prevent the next loading of the plug-in, use the Suppress Loading field. If you check Always Disabled, the plug in will not be loaded until the field value is unchecked.|
|Load Time||The read-only field that shows the time period (in seconds) during which the plug-in was being loaded.|
|Suppress Loading||Check this field to suppress the plug-in from loading in the next Visual Studio session.|
|Always Disabled||Check this field to always suppress the plug-in from loading.|
|Evaluation Status||The read-only field that shows the evaluation status of the plug-in.|
The tree view to the right of the table lists items that call the selected plug-in functions. For instance, these are events, actions, options pages, services etc.
The buttons over the table are intended to control the selected table item:
- - loads the selected plug-in assembly into memory. The button is only available for unloaded plug-ins.
- - refreshes the Plug-ins list.
- - opens the options page which is selected in the tree view. The button is available if an options page is selected in the tree view.
- - deletes the selected plug-in assembly from the disk. This button is only available for unloaded plug-ins.
