Definition

Adds a string to the Output window and a corresponding item to the task list.

Public Function OutputTaskItemString (pszOutputString As String, nPriority As VSTASKPRIORITY, nCategory As VSTASKCATEGORY, pszSubcategory As String, nBitmap As Integer, pszFilename As String, nLineNum As UInteger, pszTaskItemText As String) As Integer

Parameters

pszOutputString
String String String String String String

[in] Output string of the task item.

nPriority
VSTASKPRIORITY VSTASKPRIORITY VSTASKPRIORITY VSTASKPRIORITY VSTASKPRIORITY VSTASKPRIORITY

[in] Priority of the task item whose values are taken from the VSTASKPRIORITY enumeration.

nCategory
VSTASKCATEGORY VSTASKCATEGORY VSTASKCATEGORY VSTASKCATEGORY VSTASKCATEGORY VSTASKCATEGORY

[in] Category of the task item whose values are taken from the VSTASKCATEGORY enumeration.

pszSubcategory
String String String String String String

[in] Subcategory of the task.

nBitmap
Int32 Int32 Int32 Int32 Int32 Int32

[in] Bitmap of the task item whose values are taken from the _vstaskbitmap enumeration.

pszFilename
String String String String String String

[in] Name of the file containing pszOutputString.

nLineNum
UInt32 UInt32 UInt32 UInt32 UInt32 UInt32

[in] Line number within pszFilename of pszOutputString.

pszTaskItemText
String String String String String String

[in] Text of the task item.

Returns

If the method succeeds, it returns S_OK. If it fails, it returns an error code.

Remarks

COM Signature

From vsshell.idl:

HRESULT IVsOutputWindowPane::OutputTaskItemString(  
   [in] LPCOLESTR pszOutputString,  
   [in] VSTASKPRIORITY nPriority,  
   [in] VSTASKCATEGORY nCategory,  
   [in] LPCOLESTR pszSubcategory,  
   [in] VSTASKBITMAP nBitmap,  
   [in] LPCOLESTR pszFilename,  
   [in] ULONG nLineNum,  
   [in] LPCOLESTR pszTaskItemText  
);  

The items are not added to the task list until the FlushToTaskList method is called. It is the responsibility of the caller to parse the file name and line number information from the output string and pass these as the pszFilename and nLineNum parameters to this method. In addition, the caller can control the category and subcategory of the task item generated. This task item remains in the task list until the Output window is cleared.

If the output string has the standard format of a compiler error or warning, then the SVsLaunchPadFactory service can be used to easily parse the output string.
