Return Value

Type: System.Int32

If successful, returns S_OK; otherwise, returns an error code.

Visual Studio calls this method to provide an opportunity for your language service to associate itself with a particular code window. If you need to add other elements to the code window besides a Navigation bar (which is already handled by the CodeWindowManager class), then you must derive a class from the CodeWindowManager class and return an instance of your class from this method. Your derived class must call the base constructor for CodeWindowManager.

The base method always returns a new CodeWindowManager object. This base method instantiates a Source object (with a call to CreateSource) that is in turn supplied with a new Colorizer object (from a call to Source.GetColorizer). When the Source object is constructed, it calls CreateExpansionProvider to obtain a new ExpansionProvider object that in turn calls CreateExpansionFunction to obtain an ExpansionFunction object. The CodeWindowManager constructor calls CreateDocumentProperties to obtain a new DocumentProperties object.
