VSConstants.GUID_BuildOutputWindowPane Field

This constant represents the GUID for the interface IVsOutputWindowPane which is implemented by the shell's OutputWindow tool window. It is used by client code to display messages in the output window.

Namespace:  Microsoft.VisualStudio
Assembly:  Microsoft.VisualStudio.Shell.10.0 (in Microsoft.VisualStudio.Shell.10.0.dll)

public static readonly Guid GUID_BuildOutputWindowPane

The OutputWindow is an extensible Window, but every IVsOutputWindowPane must have an owner package that creates the pane via the CreatePane method. The interface IVsOutputWindowPane may be retrieved by calling the GetPane method. There are two standard OutputWindow panes owned by the Environment:


Projects may display build errors or warnings in the Build OutputWindow pane. This pane is created by the SVsSolutionBuildManager service. The pointer to the pane is passed to projects as part of IVsBuildableProjectCfg operations.


Client code may at any time display miscellaneous informational messages in the General OutputWindow pane. This pane may be retrieved by calling IServiceProvider.QueryService.
