I am writing a custom WorkItem control and it integrates nicely into MTM. I can easily find out the current Project loaded into MTM via the WorkItem; but I can't work out how to get the currently selected TestPlan within MTM.
Can I find out the currently selected Test Plan within a custom WorkItem control within MTM?
The TestPlan contains lots of extra information we can use within the control and it will be a better experience if the user does not have to explicitly specify the Test Plan given the context is clear.

Do you want this information manually or through code?

The ServiceProvider passed in to the IWorkItemControl doesn't seem to expose anything to give me access to the currently selected Test Plan. Given that the Test Plan *HAS* to be selected before I can open a Work Item / Test Case within MTM, and my custom control is intended to be used within MTM, it would be ideal if I could determine the Test Plan automatically via a Service call. I can easily deal with the situation where the control is used within VS2010 and the Test Plan is not available.
If I can get to the Test Plan through the API, I can locate all of its information that I need automatically and that will improve the user experience.
PS: I am aware I can have the user manually select the Test Plan within the control, but it seems... redundant, given the context is already clearly established.

I have the same Problem. I'm running a test over MTM. At the testingmachine there is no way to get over the TFS-API to the current Testplan, in that the test is running.
It would be very helpful to get a hint how to get that info.
Look to the future - and explore it!
