Hi, have you any example code that saves custom data to the layout file and then reloads it when loading a layout. It's just the demo app doesn't go this far.

Hi Geoffrey,

The SaveCustomToolWindowLayoutData event args pass you an XmlWriter. You can use that to write whatever data, like a string, to the layout.

The LoadCustomToolWindowLayoutData event args pass you an XmlReader. Then you use that to load the data back in.

I don't have sample code for this right now but it should be pretty straightforward once you try it out.
