 Member nameDescription
ext_cm_AfterStartupThe add-in was loaded after Visual Studio started. 
ext_cm_CommandLineThe add-in was loaded from the command line. 
ext_cm_ExternalThe add-in was loaded by an external client. (This setting is no longer used by Visual Studio.) 
ext_cm_SolutionThe add-in was loaded with a solution. 
ext_cm_StartupThe add-in was loaded when Visual Studio started. 
ext_cm_UISetupThe add-in was loaded for user interface setup. 

Add-ins can check the value of ext_ConnectMode to change its behavior. For example, the ext_cm_UISetup value indicates to the add-in that this is the first time it has been run. If so, the add-in can add its custom commands to the menu and toolbar. Otherwise, it can skip this step.
