public interface ITrackSelection

The selection container, an object that implements the ISelectionContainer interface, is part of the selection context attached to every window. When the current selection in a window changes and the property data reflected in the Properties window becomes out of date, the VSPackage responsible for the window updates this data by calling OnSelectChange with a new ISelectionContainer pointer. ISelectionContainer provides access to IDispatch objects that in turn provide access to data for updating the Properties window

See illustrations of the implementation and/or calling of this interface in the samples Basic Edit Overview, Solution Extender Sample, and Figures Edit Sample.

Notes to Implementers The environment implements ITrackSelection through the STrackSelection service.

Notes to Callers VSPackage document and tool windows call ITrackSelection to provide an ISelectionContainer interface pointer that can be used by the environment to retrieve property data for one or more currently selected objects. The environment updates the Properties window with this data.
