AddIn Interface

 

Defines the core functionality of add-ins that you create by using the Office development tools in Visual Studio.

Namespace:   Microsoft.Office.Tools
Assembly:  Microsoft.Office.Tools.Common (in Microsoft.Office.Tools.Common.dll)

[GuidAttribute("122bc42d-92fe-47f4-9f66-d7b282a1325b")]
public interface AddIn : IBindableComponent, IComponent, IDisposable

NameDescription
System_CAPS_pubpropertyBindingContext

(Inherited from IBindableComponent.)

System_CAPS_pubpropertyDataBindings

(Inherited from IBindableComponent.)

System_CAPS_pubpropertyDataHost

This API supports the product infrastructure and is not intended to be used directly from your code.

System_CAPS_pubpropertyDefaultExtension

Gets the default extension for this AddIn object.

System_CAPS_pubpropertyExtension

Gets a custom extension for this AddIn object.

System_CAPS_pubpropertyHostContext

This API supports the product infrastructure and is not intended to be used directly from your code.

System_CAPS_pubpropertyItemProvider

This API supports the product infrastructure and is not intended to be used directly from your code.

System_CAPS_pubpropertySite

(Inherited from IComponent.)

System_CAPS_pubpropertyTag

This API supports the product infrastructure and is not intended to be used directly from your code.

NameDescription
System_CAPS_pubmethodDispose()

(Inherited from IDisposable.)

NameDescription
System_CAPS_pubeventBindingContextChanged

This API supports the product infrastructure and is not intended to be used directly from your code.

System_CAPS_pubeventDisposed

(Inherited from IComponent.)

System_CAPS_pubeventShutdown

Occurs when the add-in is about to be unloaded.

System_CAPS_pubeventStartup

Occurs when the add-in is loaded, after all the initialization code in the assembly has run.

When you create an application-level add-in by using the Office development tools in Visual Studio, you typically do not use the AddIn interface directly. Instead, use the generated ThisAddIn class in your project. The ThisAddIn class derives most of its members from the AddInBase class. This base class redirects all calls to its members to an internal implementation of the AddIn interface in the Visual Studio Tools for Office runtime.

For more information, see Programming VSTO Add-Ins.

System_CAPS_noteNote

This interface is implemented by the Visual Studio Tools for Office runtime. It is not intended to be implemented in your code. For more information, see Visual Studio Tools for Office Runtime Overview.

This documentation describes the version of this type that is used in Office projects that target the .NET Framework 4 or later. In projects that target the .NET Framework 3.5, this type might have different members and the code examples provided for this type might not work. For documentation about this type in projects that target the .NET Framework 3.5, see the following reference section in the Visual Studio 2008 documentation: http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=160658.
