	[InAttribute] uint dwFlags,
	[InAttribute] IVsSimpleDocFactory pFactory,
	out IVsInvisibleEditor ppEditor

JScript does not support passing value-type arguments by reference.



The name of the document.


The project to which the file must belong. If a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic) is supplied, the file can belong to any project; when opened, it is opened by whichever project responds to IsDocumentInAProject from the shell (including the miscellaneous files project).


Zero or more _EDITORREGFLAGS values; If REIF_ENABLECACHING flag is set, the document is loaded and placed in the RDT immediately, if not already present, and attempts are made to keep the document there as long as possible; certain actions may force it to be unlocked, such as user closing without saving, etc. This allows the document to stay in the RDT in the scenario where a document is open in a visible editor, and closed by the user while an invisible editor is registered for that document. Otherwise, the document is not loaded until GetDocData is called (unless. of course, it is already in memory), and no unnecessary attempts to keep the document in the RDT while this editor is registered are made.


An instance of IVsSimpleDocFactory that is used to load the document if it isn't already open. If a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic) is supplied, a default editor factory is used to load the file into a shell-provided instance of IVsTextLines.


Filled with the newly created and registered invisible editor instance.

Return Value

If the method succeeds, it returns S_OK. If it fails, it returns an error code.
