) : int


  • iMarkerType
    Type: System.Int32
    [in] Type of marker to create.
  • iPos
    Type: System.Int32
    [in] Starting position in the text buffer.
  • iLength
    Type: System.Int32
    [in] Length of text to create marker over.

Return Value

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


COM Signature

From textmgr.idl:

HRESULT IVsTextStream::CreateStreamMarker(
   [in] long iMarkerType,
   [in] long iPos,
   [in] long iLength,
   [in] IVsTextMarkerClient *pClient,
   [out] IVsTextStreamMarker **ppMarker

This method creates a marker over the specified region. If you want to listen to marker events for the buffer, then pass in a pointer to the IVsTextMarkerClient interface in the pClient parameter.


The markers created using CreateStreamMarker are stream-oriented markers. Use M:Microsoft.VisualStudio.TextManager.Interop.IVsTextLines.CreateLineMarker(System.Int32,System.Int32,System.Int32,System.Int32,System.Int32,Microsoft.VisualStudio.TextManager.Interop.IVsTextMarkerClient,Microsoft.VisualStudio.TextManager.Interop.IVsTextLineMarker[]) to create line-oriented markers.
