CommandTable Element

CommandTable is the root element of the .vsct file. This is the file that defines the actual layout and type of the commands that a VSPackage provides to the IDE. Commands may include menu items, menus, toolbars, and combo boxes. For more information, see Visual Studio Command Table (.Vsct) Files.
