Implement this interface on your language service object to provide generic tips based on what the user is typing in the core editor. To intercept user characters, your language service object must also implement IOleCommandTarget. To pass the text view a pointer to your IOleCommandTarget implementation, call AddCommandFilter. The command filter intercepts commands that the user types into the code window. Monitor the command information to know when to display tip information to the user.

To provide method tips, your language service must call SetMethodData and implement IVsMethodData.

Notes for Implementers
