IRepositoryCategory Interface

Represents a category of available extensions.

Namespace:  Microsoft.VisualStudio.ExtensionManager
Assembly:  Microsoft.VisualStudio.ExtensionManager (in Microsoft.VisualStudio.ExtensionManager.dll)

public interface IRepositoryCategory

The IRepositoryCategory type exposes the following members.

Public propertyChildrenThe subcategories of the current IRepositoryCategory.
Public propertyIdThe identifier of the current IRepositoryCategory.
Public propertyParentThe parent category of the current IRepositoryCategory.
Public propertyTitleThe name of the category.

Although this API supports the Extension Manager infrastructure, we recommend that you do not use it because it is subject to change.

This interface is used by the IVsExtensionRepository to access categories of extensions. Like an XML node, a IRepositoryCategory may have parents and children to allow for multiple layers in a category tree.
