Property Value

Type: EnvDTE.Window

A Window object.



The main environment window is distinct from other windows in the environment. For example, although its Kind property is not of type vsWindowKindLinkedWindowFrame, it contains linked windows.

You can dock and undock windows from the environment window by adding and removing windows from its LinkedWindows collection.

The LinkedWindows collection is the collection of windows docked to the sides of the main environment window. If two windows are docked together but not attached to the MainWindow, they do not appear in this collection.
