Maps a tool window to one or more UI contexts, so that the window is displayed when the user switches to one of those contexts and is hidden when the user switches away from one of the contexts.

The ProvideToolWindowVisibilityAttribute type exposes the following members.
|ProvideToolWindowVisibilityAttribute||Initializes a new instance of ProvideToolWindowVisibilityAttribute for the specified type of the tool window and a GUID to associate with its visibility.|
|CommandUIGuid||Gets the GUID of a command associated with showing or hiding the tool window.|
|Name||Gets or sets the name of the window.|
|TypeId||Gets the current instance of this attribute. (Inherited from RegistrationAttribute.)|
|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.)|
|GetPackageRegKeyPath||Gets the registry path (relative to the registry root of the application) of the VSPackage. (Inherited from RegistrationAttribute.)|
|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.)|
|Register||Registers the tool window visibility. (Overrides RegistrationAttribute.Register(RegistrationAttribute.RegistrationContext).)|
|ToString||Returns a string that represents the current object. (Inherited from Object.)|
|Unregister||Removes the registry key. (Overrides RegistrationAttribute.Unregister(RegistrationAttribute.RegistrationContext).)|
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.)|
Applying this attribute to a subclass of the ToolWindowPane results in a tool window that the Visual Studio shell automatically shows or hides. The appearance of this window depends on the internal visibility attribute and the UI context information described in the package's .vsct file. If Visual Studio automatically shows a window and the user closes it, after that Visual Studio will never automatically show the window again. In order to see the tool window again after it has been closed, the user must manually open the window or delete \<USER>\Application Data\Microsoft\Visual Studio\<version>\1033\windows.prf, the Visual Studio file that saves shell information (including which windows are open, their location and size) when Visual Studio shuts down. After the window's internal visibility state is reset to true, the expected visibility behavior again occurs.
Any public static (Shared in Visual Basic) members of this type are thread safe. Any instance members are not guaranteed to be thread safe.
