Imports System
Imports EnvDTE
Imports EnvDTE80

Public Module Collapse
    Public Sub CollapseAll()
        Dim ProjectWindow As Window
        Dim SolutionExplorer As UIHierarchy

        ProjectWindow = DTE.Windows.Item(Constants.vsext_wk_SProjectWindow)
        SolutionExplorer = ProjectWindow.Object()

        If (SolutionExplorer.UIHierarchyItems.Count = 0) Then
        End If

        Dim SolutionRoot As UIHierarchyItem

        SolutionRoot = SolutionExplorer.UIHierarchyItems.Item(1)


    End Sub

    Private Sub CollapseOne(ByVal Item As UIHierarchyItem)
        For Each SubItem As UIHierarchyItem In Item.UIHierarchyItems
            If SubItem.UIHierarchyItems.Expanded Then
                SubItem.UIHierarchyItems.Expanded = False
