IShellExtInit interface

Exposes a method that initializes Shell extensions for property sheets, shortcut menus, and drag-and-drop handlers (extensions that add items to shortcut menus during nondefault drag-and-drop operations).

Methods

The IShellExtInit interface has these methods.

Method Description
IShellExtInit::Initialize Initializes a property sheet extension, shortcut menu extension, or drag-and-drop handler.

Remarks

Implement IShellExtInit when you are writing a handler based on the IContextMenu or IShellPropSheetExt interface.

Note that Shell extensions based on other interfaces do not use this method of initialization.

You do not use this interface directly. The Shell calls it to initialize the handler.
