ParameterTextType Enumeration

Specifies parameter information for the method tip window.

Namespace: Microsoft.VisualStudio.TextManager.Interop
Assembly: Microsoft.VisualStudio.TextManager.Interop (in microsoft.visualstudio.textmanager.interop.dll)

public enum ParameterTextType
public enum ParameterTextType
public enum ParameterTextType

 Member nameDescription
PTT_DECLARATIONFull declaration as it appears in signature (that is, "Long MyVariable" or "MyVariable As Long"). 
PTT_DESCRIPTIONDescription (gets its own line, and is prefixed with NAME: (bolded)). 
PTT_NAMEParameter name only (that is, "MyVariable"). 

The value of GetParameterText can return a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic) for any value except DECLARATION, or NAME if DESCRIPTION is not a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic). If a parameter description is returned to the view when it calls GetParameterText and specifies a value of PTT_DESCRIPTION, then the view will subsequently call GetParameterText and specify a value of PTT_NAME. The view then displays the name and description information in the following format:

  • Name: Description
