public interface IVsToolsOptions


Determines if the Tools Options dialog box is open.


Refreshes the visibility of the Tools Options dialog box.

The Visual Studio integrated development environment (IDE) Options dialog box consists of a tree view on the left and a properties page on the right. To open the Options dialog box, on the Tools menu, click Options. If you choose to modify the tools options properties page from your VSPackage, these methods will assist you.

Visual Studio's Source Code Control Services, for example, implements a drop-down box on the properties page from which the user can select a source control provider, and the SCC code calls RefreshPageVisibility to make its drop-down box visible.
