Command Table Configuration (.Ctc) Files

[This documentation is for preview only, and is subject to change in later releases. Blank topics are included as placeholders.]

A command table configuration (.ctc) file is a text file that describes the command set for a VSPackage. A .ctc file is compiled into a native satellite DLL, managed satellite DLL, or managed VSPackage.


Beginning with Visual Studio 2008 SDK, use XML Command Table (.vsct) files instead of command table configuration (.ctc) files to define how menus and commands appear in your VSPackages. For more information, see Visual Studio Command Table (.Vsct) Files.

The binary command table output file, identified by its .cto extension, is a resource that implements the command set described by its corresponding .ctc file.
