The InsertItem method inserts a View Item to the current Composite View’s CompositeView.Items collection at the specified position. All the following items are moved to the end of the collection. The item parameter specifies the View Item to be inserted. The index parameter specifies the position. If index is the last in the collection, the View Item is appended to the end.

Inserting an item to the CompositeView.Items collection raises the CompositeView.ItemsChanged event.

Generally, you do not need to use this method. Instead, you can add View Items via the Application Model. For this purpose, use the Application | Views | DetailView | Items node.
