Visual Studio Integration Samples

The Visual Studio SDK includes samples that demonstrate how to integrate what you develop into the Visual Studio integrated development environment (IDE). The source code directory of each sample includes a document named Overview.xml, which contains detailed implementation notes for that sample.

To view the samples, click the Samples tab in the SDK Browser. The SDK Browser is displayed when you start the Visual Studio SDK. On the Samples tab, browse to find the sample that you want to view.

The Samples tab has three control panes at the top and a viewing pane at the bottom. Select a category in the left control pane to filter the samples in the middle control pane according to that category. Select a sample in the middle pane to display its documentation in the viewing pane and set available options in the right control pane.

The right control pane provides the following options for working with the selected sample, depending on what is available in the sample.

Open this Sample in Visual Studio

Copies the original sample folder to a location in your document store, if not already present, and opens the copy in the IDE.

Open this Sample's Unit Tests in Visual Studio

Copies the original sample folder to a location in your document store, if not already present, and opens the associated unit tests in the IDE.

Open Sample Folder

Copies the original sample folder to a location in your document store, if not already present, and opens the folder.

Reset the Sample to its unmodified state

Copies the original sample folder to a location in your document store and overwrites any version that you may have already modified.

Change cache location for samples

Opens a dialog box in which you can change the location of your document store.

NoteNote:

When you open samples by using the SDK browser and the default document store location, you do not have to have administrator rights for Visual Studio because the default location is in your user folder. Opening sample files from other locations may require administrator rights.

In addition to viewing the samples that are included in the Visual Studio SDK, you can also examine the samples on the Visual Studio Extensibility Developer Center Web site.
