Defines the core functionality of add-ins that you create by using the Office development tools in Visual Studio.
Assemblies: Microsoft.Office.Tools.Common.v4.0.Utilities (in Microsoft.Office.Tools.Common.v4.0.Utilities.dll)
Microsoft.Office.Tools.Common (in Microsoft.Office.Tools.Common.dll)
Microsoft.Office.Tools.Outlook.v4.0.Utilities (in Microsoft.Office.Tools.Outlook.v4.0.Utilities.dll)
Thetype exposes the following members.
|BindingContext||Gets or sets the collection of currency managers for the IBindableComponent. (Inherited from IBindableComponent.)|
|DataBindings||Gets the collection of data-binding objects for this IBindableComponent. (Inherited from IBindableComponent.)|
|DefaultExtension||Gets the default extension for this object.|
|Extension||Gets a custom extension for this object.|
|Site||Gets or sets the ISite associated with the IComponent. (Inherited from IComponent.)|
|Disposed||Represents the method that handles the Disposed event of a component. (Inherited from IComponent.)|
|Shutdown||Occurs when the add-in is about to be unloaded.|
|Startup||Occurs when the add-in is loaded, after all the initialization code in the assembly has run.|
When you create an application-level add-in by using the Office development tools in Visual Studio, you typically do not use the interface directly. Instead, use the generated ThisAddIn class in your project. The ThisAddIn class derives most of its members from the AddInBase class. This base class redirects all calls to its members to an internal implementation of the interface in the Visual Studio Tools for Office runtime.
For more information, see Programming Application-Level Add-Ins.
This interface is implemented by the Visual Studio Tools for Office runtime. It is not intended to be implemented in your code. For more information, see Visual Studio Tools for Office Runtime Overview.
This documentation describes the version of this type that is used in Office projects that target the .NET Framework 4 and the .NET Framework 4.5. In projects that target the .NET Framework 3.5, this type might have different members and the code examples provided for this type might not work. For documentation about this type in projects that target the .NET Framework 3.5, see the following reference section in the Visual Studio 2008 documentation: http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=160658.
