Expression.DTE Expression.DTE Expression.DTE Expression.DTE Expression.DTE Property


Gets the top-level extensibility object.

 property EnvDTE::DTE ^ DTE { EnvDTE::DTE ^ get(); };
 property EnvDTE::DTE ^ DTE { EnvDTE::DTE ^ get(); };
[get: System.Runtime.InteropServices.DispId(200)]
public EnvDTE.DTE DTE { get; }
member this.DTE : EnvDTE.DTE
Public ReadOnly Property DTE As DTE
Property Value

A DTE object.


The following example demonstrates how to use the DTE property.

public static void DTE(DTE dte)  
    // Setup debug Output window.  
    Window w = (Window)dte.Windows.Item(EnvDTE.Constants.vsWindowKindOutput);  
    w.Visible = true;  
    OutputWindow ow = (OutputWindow)w.Object;  
    OutputWindowPane owp = ow.OutputWindowPanes.Add("DTE Property Test: ");  

    EnvDTE.Expression exp = dte.Debugger.GetExpression("tempC", true, 1);  
    owp.OutputString("Edition of the environment: " + exp.DTE.Edition);  
Shared Sub DTEProperty(ByRef dte As EnvDTE.DTE)  
    Dim exp As EnvDTE.Expression = dte.Debugger.GetExpression("tempC", True, 1)  
    MessageBox.Show("Edition of the environment: " + exp.DTE.Edition, _  
                    "Expression Test - DTE Property")  
End Sub  


In Visual Studio, the DTE object is the root of the automation model, which other object models often call "Application."
