Namespace:  Microsoft.VisualStudio.Shell
Assembly:  Microsoft.VisualStudio.Shell.10.0 (in Microsoft.VisualStudio.Shell.10.0.dll)

protected void ParseToolboxResource(
	TextReader resourceData,
	Guid packageGuid


Type: System.IO.TextReader
A text reader that provides toolbox item data in the format described in Remarks.
Type: System.Guid
The GUID of the VSPackage.

The text resource that a VSPackage parses using ParseToolboxResource must be embedded in an assembly and name space accessible to the VSPackage.

Text resources should be added to an assembly by right-clicking on the assembly's project, selection Add and the New Item. From the New Item menu, then select Text File. Once the text file has been added to the project, set its Build Action property to Embedded Resource.

This method can be used to add items to the toolbox automatically. The resource data is passed in through the resourceData parameter and consists of a text file with the following format:

; Comment
<class name>, <assembly name>

These resources will not be localized.
