When you create a context bag on an editor, call IVsUserContext.AdviseUpdate and pass along a pointer to your context provider. When Update is called internally by the environment, the Dynamic Help window goes through each context bag in the active selection synchronously and retrieves context from any context bag and associated subcontext bag that is flagged as dirty using the SetDirty method. However, if the context bag is on an editor window that has called IVsUserContext::AdviseUpdate and has also implemented the IVsUserContextUpdate interface, then the environment calls UpdateUserContext to inform the context provider that the context bag will be updated (that is, Update will be called). You can use this call to change the attributes and keywords in the context bag before the Dynamic Help window update occurs. For more information, see Providing Context for an Editors and Designers.

To disable notification of user context updates, call UnadviseUpdate.
