Public Enum __VSHPROPID

VSHPROPID_HasEnumerationSideEffects -2062

VSHPROPID_IsNewUnsavedItem -2057

VSHPROPID_IsNonLocalStorage -2045

BOOL. [optional] Specifies whether project storage is local. IPersistFileFormat is used for saving the project whether it is a local "file" or not.

VSHPROPID_IsNonMemberItem -2044

Each __VSHPROPID must return a VARIANT structure filled in with the correct VT_ type. The caller may assume the VT_ type is correct—that is, you don't have to call VariantChangeType(), or verify the type, beyond an ASSERT() to make sure that there were no header file mismatches, and so on.


__VSHPROPID values must not overlap any other *PROPID group values.

This same logic applies to the caller when it sets a property—the hierarchy assumes that the caller has passed a VARIANT already converted to the correct VT_ type.
