IVsEditorAdaptersFactoryService Interface

Provides helper methods to switch between interfaces for the earlier Visual Studio editor (for example, IVsTextView) and the equivalent interfaces for the current Visual Studio editor (for example, ITextView). IVsEditorAdaptersFactoryService also has methods to create adapters for IVsTextBuffer, IVsTextView, and IVsCodeWindow.

These adapters provide an implementation of earlier interfaces that is based on the current interfaces (ITextBuffer and ITextView). You can use one of these adapters wherever an earlier type is required.

Namespace:  Microsoft.VisualStudio.Editor
Assembly:  Microsoft.VisualStudio.Editor (in Microsoft.VisualStudio.Editor.dll)

The IVsEditorAdaptersFactoryService type exposes the following members.


  Name Description
Public method CreateVsCodeWindowAdapter Creates an IVsCodeWindow.
Public method CreateVsTextBufferAdapter(IServiceProvider) Creates an IVsTextBuffer.
Public method CreateVsTextBufferAdapter(IServiceProvider, IContentType) Creates an IVsTextBuffer with the specified IContentType.

The following code shows how to get this service from the SComponentModel service to create a code window.

using Microsoft.VisualStudio.TextManager.Interop;
using Microsoft.VisualStudio.Shell;
using Microsoft.VisualStudio.Editor;
using System.ComponentModel.Composition;
using Microsoft.VisualStudio.ComponentModelHost;

public sealed class MyPackage : Package
    private IServiceProvider serviceProvider;
    IVSCodeWindow CreateCodeWindow()
        IVsEditorAdaptersFactoryService editorAdapterService;
        IComponentModel componentModel = (IComponentModel) GetService(typeof(SComponentModel));
        editorAdapterService = componentModel.GetService<IVsEditorAdaptersFactoryService>();
        IVsTextBuffer textBuffer = adaptersFactory.CreateVsTextBufferAdapter(serviceProvider);
        textBuffer.InitializeContent("text", 4); 
        IVsCodeWindow codeWindow = adaptersFactory.CreateVsCodeWindowAdapter(serviceProvider);
        codeWindow.SetBuffer(textBuffer as IVsTextLines);

        return codeWindow;
