The editor factory to register.



To register an editor factory for a VSPackage, perform the following steps:

  1. Add a RegisterEditorExtensionAttribute to your Package class.

  2. Override the Initialize method. In your implementation of the Initialize method, call the RegisterEditorFactorymethod and pass the instance of your editor factory.

    Editor factories are automatically unregistered when the package is disposed. If the editor factory object implements IDisposable, its Dispose method is called after the factory has been unregistered with Visual Studio.
