The AttributeWindow is an Editor extension that provides a window for viewing additional information about selected features involved in the current edit session. The attributes window has two panels: the left panel lists the selected features, and the right panel houses an object inspector.

ArcMap ships with a default object inspector called the FeatureInspector, which facilitates attribute editing. A custom object inspector may be associated with Geodatabase feature classes; in this case, the custom inspector will show up in the right attributes window panel whenever a feature that belongs to one of these features classes is selected in the left panel.

Right-clicking a feature listed in the attributes window reveals a context menu with commands such as Highlight and Zoom To. This menu is not customizable; you cannot add or remove commands from this menu.
