UIElement("uie://menu/QuickStart/Help")
public ToolStripMenuItem HelpItem
{
get { return helpItem; }
set { helpItem = value; }
}

According to the above sample if I want to define a WorkItem that exposes a menu item I have to tie that WorkItem to a specific UI Framework in this case Windows.Forms. I think it would be a little cleaner to have a Method conforming to a signature or delegate that I can define in the WorkItem then decorate with the Attribute. This would allow the framework to excute the method and not tie my WorkItems to a specific UI Framework.

Agreed.

But in that last drop we didn't have any other (looser) ways to relate a method in a WorkItem to a UIElement in the shell. That has changed in the current code and you will be much happier with the next drop.

Good. I can't wait to see it. Any chance of finding the latest updates in the intranet anywhere? If you don't want to post here please send to chrispat.

Thanks
