ProvideLanguageCodeExpansionAttribute.Register Method

Creates all of the registry keys and entries as specified by the class constructor.

Namespace:  Microsoft.VisualStudio.Shell
Assembly:  Microsoft.VisualStudio.Shell.12.0 (in Microsoft.VisualStudio.Shell.12.0.dll)

public override void Register(
	RegistrationAttribute.RegistrationContext context
)

This method is called to create the necessary registry keys and entries to specify support for code snippets. Typically, a program such as regpkg.exe reads a specified assembly and looks for all attributes that inherit from the RegistrationAttribute. Regpkg.exe then instantiates each attribute, supplying the appropriate parameters that were specified when the attribute was compiled. Finally, regpkg.exe calls the Register method on the newly created object to cause all of the appropriate registry keys and entries to be created.

Note that this method is an override of and specific to the managed package framework (MPF) RegistrationAttribute class.
