Member name Description
Passthrough A mode in which the view object is passed directly to the development environment. The view object must implement any interfaces the development environment requires. The Visual Studio .NET development environment supports view objects that are either an ActiveX control, active document, or an object that implements the IVsWindowPane interface that is available through Visual Studio VSI (Visual Studio Integration) program.
Note   The Visual Studio .NET development environment provides support for this view technology. Support for this view technology is not necessarily available in all development environments.
WindowsForms A mode in which a Windows Forms control object provides the display for the root designer. The designer host fills the development environment document window with this control.
