vsConfigurationType Type { get; }

Property Value

Type: EnvDTE.vsConfigurationType

A vsConfigurationType constant, specifying the type of configuration.

For configurations, Type returns a constant indicating whether the collection of configurations is a row of configurations for a specific configuration name, or a column of configurations for a given platform. If the window belongs to an environment tool, then Type identifies the tool. If the window is for a package-supplied tool or document window, then Type is either vsWindowTypeToolWindow or vsWindowTypeDocument, and the ObjectKind property indicates package-specific type information.
