If your language service supports custom colorable items, you must derive a class from the LanguageService class and implement this method as well as GetItemCount. Note that this method is never called with an index of 0 since that index represents the default text format set by the user. You should return an error if the index is outside the range of your list.

In the Managed Package Framework, a custom colorable item is represented by the ColorableItem class, which implements the IVsColorableItem interface.

The base method always returns E_NOTIMPL indicating the method is not implemented.
