  2. Run the target application in the debug mode.

  3. When the application stops on the breakpoint, run the add-in.

public static void Collection(DTE dte)
{
    // Setup debug Output window.
    Window w = (Window)dte.Windows.Item(EnvDTE.Constants.vsWindowKindOutput);
    w.Visible = true;
    OutputWindow ow = (OutputWindow)w.Object;
    OutputWindowPane owp = ow.OutputWindowPanes.Add("Collection Property Test");
    owp.Activate();

    EnvDTE.Language language = dte.Debugger.Languages.Item(1);
    owp.OutputString("Number of items in the language collection is " + 
                     language.Collection.Count + ": ");
    foreach(EnvDTE.Language lang in language.Collection)
        owp.OutputString(lang.Name + "  ");
    owp.OutputString("\nEdition of the environment: " + language.DTE.Edition);
    owp.OutputString("\nThe name of the current program: " + 
                     language.Parent.CurrentProgram.Name);
}
