The Visual Studio IDE generates a ToolboxUpgraded event whenever one or more of the following situations occur:

  1. The version number of an existing Toolbox item provider supplied by a VSPackage changes.

    The Toolbox item provider version number of a VSPackage is set by the version argument of the ProvideToolboxItemsAttribute object that must be applied to any VSPackage providing Toolbox items.

  2. A VSPackage programmatically generates a ToolboxInitialized event through the Visual Studio SDK by a VSPackage calling ResetDefaults with PKGRF_TOOLBOXSETUP.

                IVsUIShell uiShell = (IVsUIShell)GetService(typeof(SVsUIShell));
                IVsPackage pkg = GetService(typeof(Package)) as IVsPackage;
                pkg.ResetDefaults((uint)__VSPKGRESETFLAGS. PKGRF_TOOLBOXSETUP);

For more information on handling a ToolboxInitialized event and providing custom Toolbox items, see Advanced Toolbox Control Development.
