Sub testIS2()  
    ' Before running, open a document in Visual Studio.

    Dim tp As EnvDTE80.TextPane2  
    tp = CType(DTE.ActiveDocument.ActiveWindow.Object.ActivePane, _  
    TextPane2)  
    ' Start an incremental search backward from  
    ' the current insertion point in the document.  
    tp.IncrementalSearch.StartBackward()  
    ' Add the character "a" to the search pattern.  
    tp.IncrementalSearch.AppendCharAndSearch(Asc("a"))  
    ' Display the parent name for IncrementalSearch object.  
    MsgBox("IncrementalSearch parent: " & _  
    tp.IncrementalSearch.DTE.FullName)  
    MsgBox("Search pattern length: " & _  
    tp.IncrementalSearch.Pattern.Length)  
    ' Perform incremental search using the pattern ("a").  
    tp.IncrementalSearch.SearchWithLastPattern()  
    ' After the search, exit incremental search mode.  
    MsgBox("DeleteCharAndBackup")  
    tp.IncrementalSearch.DeleteCharAndBackup()
