Property Value

Type: System.Object
The object that represents the content of this tool window.


Override or set to provide the content of this tool window. Expected kinds of objects include FrameworkElement, IVsUIWpfElement, or IVsUIWin32Element. If the object is not of one of the expected types, it will be wrapped in a ContentControl and treated as a WPF control. A styling or formatting may be applied through the global resource dictionary.

If your tool content is created from XAML, you must override the setter to provide a backing store for the content.
