Description

TemplateData

Categorizes the template and defines how it displays in either the New Project or the Add New Item dialog box.

An integer value is required.

This value specifies the number of parent categories that will display the template in the New Project dialog box.

NumberOfParentCategoriesToRollUp is an optional element.

This example illustrates the metadata for a Visual C# Windows application. If a template with this metadata is placed two folder levels below the top level Visual C# node, the template will appear in the top level node in the New Project dialog box. If the NumberOfParentCategoriesToRollUp is not set, the template only appears in the node in which it is physically located.
