Namespace:  Microsoft.VisualStudio.Shell.Interop
Assembly:  Microsoft.VisualStudio.Shell.Interop (in Microsoft.VisualStudio.Shell.Interop.dll)

int OpenStandardEditor(
	uint grfOpenStandard,
	string pszMkDocument,
	ref Guid rguidLogicalView,
	string pszOwnerCaption,
	IVsUIHierarchy pHier,
	uint itemid,
	IntPtr punkDocDataExisting,
	IServiceProvider psp,
	out IVsWindowFrame ppWindowFrame


Type: System.UInt32

[in] Flags whose values are taken from the __VSOSEFLAGS enumeration.

Type: System.String

[in] String form of the unique moniker identifier of the document in the project system. If the document is a file, you can simply specify the file extension for this parameter rather than the full path to the file (for example, .bmp or txt). In non-file cases, this identifier is often in the form of a URL.

Type: System.Guid%

[in] GUID identifying the logical view. If the editor implements IVsMultiViewDocumentView on the document view object, then the value passed into the rguidLogicalView parameter determines which view is activated when the editor window is shown. By specifying the logical view GUID, you can request the specific view that matches the reason you are requesting the view. For example, specify LOGVIEWID_Debugging to get the view appropriate for debugging, or LOGVIEWID_TextView to get the view appropriate for the text editor (that is, a view that implements IVsCodeWindow).

Type: System.String

[in] Initial caption defined by the document owner (that is, the project) for the document window. This is often of the form: "ProjectName – ItemName."

Type: Microsoft.VisualStudio.Shell.Interop.IVsUIHierarchy

[in] Pointer to the IVsUIHierarchy interface.

Type: System.UInt32

[in] UI hierarchy item identifier of the standard editor. For more information see VSITEMID.

Type: System.IntPtr

[in] Pointer to the IUnknown interface of the document data object.

Type: Microsoft.VisualStudio.OLE.Interop.IServiceProvider

[in] Pointer to the IServiceProvider interface.

Type: Microsoft.VisualStudio.Shell.Interop.IVsWindowFrame%

[out, retval] Pointer to the IVsWindowFrame interface.

Return Value

Type: System.Int32
If the method succeeds, it returns S_OK. If it fails, it returns an error code.
