Can't seem to find any documentation regarding SQL Addin

Im trying to develop an extending add-in to SSMS, versions 15,17,19 .

From the little I found on the web there are only a small number of tutorials to create a simple add-in using VS add-in but nothing more,

I searched the entire directory of SQL on MSDN for any API or documentation regarding such ability and found nothing.

My end result is to create an add-in which will listen to events from the SSMS, such as User opened a new query or user starts to run a new query.

Thanks,
Orel.

I have a working SSMS extension here: https://github.com/ErikEJ/SqlCeToolbox

In particular: https://github.com/ErikEJ/SqlCeToolbox/tree/master/src/GUI/SSMSToolbox/SSMSEngine

For versions before 18, you also need to have your extension id on a list of approved extensions, so it is unlikely that you will be able to do that.

The reason why there is no documentation is that is is basically an unsupported (by technically possible) scenario.

Thank you Erik,

It's weird that its possible but not 'supported'.

Thanks,
Orel.
