GlobalType Class

Provides the base class for types that are defined in the project or generated from code.

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

public abstract class GlobalType : MarshalByRefObject

A global type is a standard instanced object, but the type for this object comes from a project in the solution or from generated code.

The GlobalType class provides data about a specific global type. You cannot create global types directly, but often you need to track them for type changes, additions, and removals. GlobalType inherits from MarshalByRefObject so that GlobalObject, which derives from GlobalType, can have its instances marshaled across domains.

Any public static (Shared in Visual Basic) members of this type are thread safe. Any instance members are not guaranteed to be thread safe.
