Public Interface IVsProvideUserContext


If you are pushing selection to the Properties window using the IVsTrackSelectionEx interface and you want to provide context on the selected item, then the selected item needs to implement the IVsProvideUserContext interface. For example, use IVsProvideUserContext to provide context for items in a task list or a button on a designer.

See illustrations of the implementation and/or calling of this interface in the sample Figures Edit.
