public interface IVsTaskList2

The IVsTaskList2 type exposes the following members.

Public methodBeginTaskEditScrolls if necessary to make the task visible, selects it, and enters edit mode with the focus on the specified field. If the task does not belong to the active provider or the specified field is not a visible, editable field, the method will fail.
Public methodEnumSelectedItemsReturns an enumerator that will enumerate all the selected items, in order from last selected to first selected.
Public methodGetActiveProviderReturns the currently active task provider.
Public methodGetCaretPosReturns the item that currently has the caret. This item is always among the selected items.
Public methodGetSelectionCountReturns the count of selected items, which may be anywhere from zero to the total count of items in the task list.
Public methodRefreshAllProvidersRefreshes all tasks from all registered providers.
Public methodRefreshOrAddTasksRefreshes all cached information for the given tasks.
Public methodRemoveTasksRemoves tasks from the tasklist.
Public methodSelectItemsSelects zero or more items. Pass in zero for nItems to remove the selection entirely. All non-filtered items in pItems will be selected and the last one will become the caret item. Filtered items are ignored.
Public methodSetActiveProviderSelects the provider currently displayed in the tasklist.
