Better Access to the CMake GUI


Access to the CMake GUI is nice, but it will be more useful if it can automaticall open cmake-gui with project source folder filled in.

I mean it can it should use the following command
cmake-gui $Project_SOURCE_DIR
where $Project_SOURCE_DIR is set to the project source folder containing the primary CMakeLists.txt file for the solution currently open.

This feature will help in quickly modifying the cmake and regenerate the current visual studio solution.

It should actually be
cmake-gui $(SolutionDir)
So the binary dir, not the source dir.
