C++ and Visual Basic Code

The following considerations apply to both C++ and Visual Basic developers:

  • Publish your clipboard formats and node types to allow extensions to be written to your snap-in. For more information about gaining free exposure for your snap-in on the Microsoft website, send email to: snapreq@microsoft.com.
  • Do not change the node selected in the scope pane when your snap-in receives a selection or expand notification.
  • For Visual Basic developers: If you add a childless node, ensure that HasChildren is set to False so that the plus sign (+) is hidden in the console tree.

    For C++ developers: If you add a childless scope pane node, ensure that the SCOPEDATAITEM.cChildren member is set to 0 so that the plus sign is hidden in the console tree.
