The DefaultRegistryRootAttribute type exposes the following members.
|DefaultRegistryRootAttribute||Initializes a new DefaultRegistryRootAttribute object with the given registry root.|
|Root||Gets the value of the default registry root for the VSPackage.|
|TypeId||When implemented in a derived class, gets a unique identifier for this Attribute. (Inherited from Attribute.)|
|Equals||Infrastructure. Returns a value that indicates whether this instance is equal to a specified object. (Inherited from Attribute.)|
|Finalize||Allows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before it is reclaimed by garbage collection. (Inherited from Object.)|
|GetHashCode||Returns the hash code for this instance. (Inherited from Attribute.)|
|GetType||Gets the Type of the current instance. (Inherited from Object.)|
|IsDefaultAttribute||When overridden in a derived class, indicates whether the value of this instance is the default value for the derived class. (Inherited from Attribute.)|
|Match||When overridden in a derived class, returns a value that indicates whether this instance equals a specified object. (Inherited from Attribute.)|
|MemberwiseClone||Creates a shallow copy of the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)|
|ToString||Returns a string that represents the current object. (Inherited from Object.)|
Explicit Interface Implementations
|_Attribute.GetIDsOfNames||Maps a set of names to a corresponding set of dispatch identifiers. (Inherited from Attribute.)|
|_Attribute.GetTypeInfo||Retrieves the type information for an object, which can be used to get the type information for an interface. (Inherited from Attribute.)|
|_Attribute.GetTypeInfoCount||Retrieves the number of type information interfaces that an object provides (either 0 or 1). (Inherited from Attribute.)|
|_Attribute.Invoke||Provides access to properties and methods exposed by an object. (Inherited from Attribute.)|
Packages that target Visual Studio 2010 only do not need a package load key.
Packages that target Visual Studio 2008 and earlier must have a package load key in order to validate and load VSPackages.
When to Call
For packages that target Visual Studio 2008 or earlier, apply the attribute DefaultRegistryRootAttribute to your Package-derived class or class that implements IVsPackage to define the default registry root for the package.
This attribute should be applied to classes implementing the Package class and needing to use an alternate registry root. If not present, the default registry root will be used and this may prevent the package from functioning. The base Package class already provides this attribute for the version of Visual Studio that the package was built for.
The value of the attribute must be a fully qualified registry root, such as Software\Microsoft\VisualStudio\8.0. External registration tools can override the default registry root with their own custom root.
This attribute class is only used to provide data for external registration tools. It does not have any effect on the runtime behavior of the VSPackage. To use DefaultRegistryRootAttribute, place it on class that is derived from Package or that implements IVsPackage.
Any public static (Shared in Visual Basic) members of this type are thread safe. Any instance members are not guaranteed to be thread safe.
