  • Hi

    I am trying to Customize data source window to  include a search feature. Basically our VS 2010 users wants a search feature inside the datasource window. 

    Any help on this is highly appreciated.

  • Hi Harinatha,

    Sorry for the long delay in responding to this inquiry. I finally got around to reviewing the Data Source Toolwindow sources and it doesn't look like there is anything exposed that would let you customize or interact with this toolwindow. The toolwindow itself is implemented in the Microsoft.VSDesigner.dll assembly, but the class that implements the toolwindow (Microsoft.VSDesigner.DataFieldPicker.DataFieldPickerToolWindow) is marked internal, and there is no documentation, nor do there appear to be any public interfaces in which to interact with it (outside the standard automation methods like EnvDTE.Window....).
