Every project in the solution has a project automation interface. In rare cases, this is a generic, unmodeled project implementation that returns the project's name.
Every tool in the environment that has a project has a Project object.
Reference this object by using
DTE.Solution.Item or by using a specific language's objects, such as
Project-specific objects such as
DTE.VCProjects.Item are located in other assemblies. Visual Basic and Visual C# project objects are located in VSLangProj, and Visual C++ project objects are located in Microsoft.VisualStudio.VCProjectEngine. See Extending Visual Basic and Visual C# Projects and Visual C++ Project Model for more information about programming against project-specific objects.
Gets the CodeModel object for the project.
Gets the top-level extensibility object.
Gets the requested Extender object if it is available for this object.
Gets the Extender category ID (CATID) for the object.
Gets a list of available Extenders for the object.
Microsoft Internal Use Only.
Gets the full path and name of the Project object's file.
Gets the Globals object containing values that may be saved in the solution (.sln) file, the project file, or in the user's profile data.
Microsoft Internal Use Only.
Gets a GUID string indicating the kind or type of the object.
Gets or sets the name of the object.
Gets an interface or object that can be accessed by name at run time.
Gets a ProjectItem object for the nested project in the host project.
Gets a collection of all properties that pertain to the Project object.
Gets or sets a value indicating whether the object has not been modified since last being saved or opened.
Gets a unique string value that allows you to differentiate between similarly named projects.
Removes the project from the current solution.
Note that this method is not currently implemented.
Saves the project or project item.
Saves the solution, project, or project item.
