ILocalRegistry Interface

Establishes a locally-registered COM object relative to the local Visual Studio registry hive.

Namespace:  Microsoft.VisualStudio.Shell.Interop
Assembly:  Microsoft.VisualStudio.Shell.Interop (in Microsoft.VisualStudio.Shell.Interop.dll)

public interface ILocalRegistry

The ILocalRegistry type exposes the following members.

Public methodCreateInstanceCreates an instance of a class listed in the local registry.
Public methodGetClassObjectOfClsidReturns the class object associated with a CLSID.
Public methodGetTypeLibOfClsidNot implemented. Do not use.

In this interface IUnknown pointers are passed as object instead of IntPtr. The result is a wrapped managed proxy pointer and not the actual IUnknown pointer.

This interface provides a site with a local registry of object and type information. The local registry is not related to the system-wide registration database; it is strictly for use by the project.

Notes to Implementers

Visual Studio implements this interface.

Notes to Callers

This interface is obtained from the SLocalRegistry service.
