If you attempt to retrieve a variable that does not exist, the variable is created with an empty value. If you attempt to set a variable that does not exist, it is created with the specified value.


VariableValue name strings cannot contain space, colon (:), or period(.) characters. If a name has any of these characters, you get the error, "Value does not fall within expected range."

void OnAddinLoaded(_DTE applicationObject)
    // Count the number of times an add-in is loaded
    // and store the value in the solution.
    Globals globals;
    globals = applicationObject.Solution.Globals;
        // The counter has already been set, so increment it.
        System.Int32 int32;
        int32 = System.Int32.Parse((string)
        globals["AddinLoadCounter"] = int32.ToString();
        // Counter has never been set, so create and initialize it.
        globals["AddinLoadCounter"] = 1.ToString();
        globals.set_VariablePersists("AddinLoadCounter", true);
    System.Windows.Forms.MessageBox.Show("This add-in has been loaded: 
    " + globals.VariableValue["AddinLoadCounter"] + " times.");
