From textmgr.idl:

HRESULT IVsTextLines::CreateLineMarker(
   [in] long iMarkerType,
   [in] long iStartLine,
   [in] CharIndex iStartIndex,
   [in] long iEndLine,
   [in] CharIndex iEndIndex,
   [in] IVsTextMarkerClient * pClient,
   [out] IVsTextLineMarker ** ppMarker

This method creates a marker over the specified region. If you want to listen to marker events for the buffer, then pass in a pointer to the IVsTextMarkerClient interface in the pClient parameter.


The markers created using IVsTextLines.CreateLineMarker are line-oriented markers. Use CreateStreamMarker to create stream-oriented markers.
