Examples

public void CodeExample(DTE2 dte, AddIn addin)  
{   // Make sure you have a solution loaded into Visual Studio  
    // before running the following example.  
    try  
    {

        Configuration config;   
        ConfigurationManager configmgr;

            prj = dte.Solution.Projects.Item(1);  
            config = prj.ConfigurationManager.ActiveConfiguration;  
            // Returning the Configuration type constant.  
            MessageBox.Show(config.Type.ToString());  
            // Returns the ConfigurationManager containing the active configuration.  
            configmgr = config.Collection;  
            // Returns the application containing this active configuration.  
            MessageBox.Show(config.DTE.Name);  
        }  
    }  
    catch(Exception ex)  
    {  
        MessageBox.Show(ex.Message);  
    }  
}  

Remarks

For configurations, Type returns a constant indicating whether the collection of configurations is a row of configurations for a specific configuration name, or a column of configurations for a given platform. If the window belongs to an environment tool, then Type identifies the tool. If the window is for a package-supplied tool or document window, then Type is either vsWindowTypeToolWindow or vsWindowTypeDocument, and the ObjectKind property indicates package-specific type information.
