This method is called on the list when the list item is selected in the tool UI. This applies to both the Class View and Object Browser tools. Many implementations, such as C++, simply reuse the CodeModel automation objects as the property browse objects.

You may return E_NOTIMPL if you don't support symbol level property browsing.
