An ADD-IN is a tool that you create programmatically by using objects, methods, properties, collections, and events in.NET’s extensibility object model. These objects and their respective methods, properties, and events enable you to automate difficult and tedious tasks within the Visual Studio integrated development environment (IDE). These tasks are usually accomplished in response to an event, such as the mouse being clicked, a form being added to a project, or a control being added to a form. The action may or may not be visible to the developer.
