Visual C++ Wizard Model

Visual Studio add-ins are deprecated in Visual Studio 2013. You should upgrade your add-ins to VSPackage extensions. For more information about upgrading, see How to: Convert an Add-in to a VSPackage.

The Visual C++ Wizard Model provides automation support for designing wizards and provides methods for the following wizard development issues:

  • Launching UI-based and non-UI-based wizards.

  • Modifying the contents in a wizard's HTML user interface.

  • Controlling the user interaction with the HTML user interface.

  • Accessing the Visual C++ Code Model for queries, user input validation, and code generation.
