ViewDescription Class

Visual Studio 2008

This is the abstract base class that describes the type of view to present when a node is selected. View descriptions provide MMC with the information that is needed to create a view instance. The framework provides derived versions of the ViewDescription class for each kind of supported view. Instances of these derived classes are added to the ViewDescriptions collection of the scope node. There are four derived view description classes, one for each type of view.
