public interface IVsWindowFrameSwitcher

System_CAPS_pubmethodAddTool(Guid, String)

Adds a tool to this frame switcher.


Gets the inner frame of the active tool for the group.


Initializes the switcher by indicating the VSConstants.VSSELELEMID it will monitor for switching between tools in the group. This can be one of the existing VSSELELEMID values or a custom slot in the SelectionElements registry key.

System_CAPS_pubmethodRemoveTool(Guid, String)

Removes a tool from the frame switcher.

This interface makes it possible for multiple tools with the same information to operate as a single functional unit with a group identity. One example of this is the Properties window.

This interface is retrieved by calling QueryInterface on the IVsWindowFrame of a Tool Window.
