  • guidFlavor
    Type: System.Guid%
    [in] GUID of the project subtype.
  • storage
    Type: System.UInt32
    [in] File storage type. Values are taken from _PersistStorageType enumeration. The file type is either project file (.vsproj or .vbproj) or user file (.vsproj.user or .vbproj.user).
  • pszXMLFragment
    Type: System.String
    [in] String containing the XML fragment.

Return Value

Type: System.Int32
If the method succeeds, it returns S_OK. If it fails, it returns an error code.


COM Signature

From vsshell80.idl:

HRESULT IPersistXMLFragment::Load(
   [in] REFGUID guidFlavor,
   [in] PersistStorageType storage,
   [in] LPCOLESTR pszXMLFragment

Base project system loads the appropriate XML fragment from the project subtype project or user file given the project subtype GUID and then calls on the project subtype to not persist its data.

In a common scenario, a project subtype implementation intercepts its own GUID and handles the call, and forwards all other calls to inner subtypes (with their associated GUIDs).
