IVsSelectionEvents Interface

Notifies registered VSPackages of changes to the current selection, element value, or command UI context.

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

public interface IVsSelectionEvents

The IVsSelectionEvents type exposes the following members.

Public methodOnCmdUIContextChangedReports that the command UI context has changed.
Public methodOnElementValueChangedReports that an element value has changed.
Public methodOnSelectionChangedReports that the project hierarchy, item and/or selection container has changed.

To receive notifications, you must first register with the SVsShellMonitorSelection service by calling AdviseSelectionEvents. The pSink parameter to this method holds a pointer to your IVsSelectionEvents interface.

Each method in IVsSelectionEvents reports a different type of change. For example, when the current selection changes, your OnSelectionChanged method is called.

Notes to Implementers

VSPackages implement IVsSelectionEvents to be able to track selection changes in the environment.
