Examples

Sub ProjectExample()  
' This function creates a solution and adds a Visual Basic Console  
' project to it.   
   Dim soln As Solution2  
   Dim proj As Project  
   Dim msg As String  
' Create a reference to the solution.  
   soln = DTE.Solution  
' Create a new solution.  
   soln.Create("c:\temp2", "MyNewSolution")  
' Create a new Visual Basic Console application project.   
' Adjust the save path as needed.  
   Dim fileN As String  
   fileN = soln.GetProjectTemplate("ConsoleApplication.zip", "VisualBasic")  
   proj = soln.AddFromTemplate(fileN, "c:\temp2", "My New Project", True)  

' Save the new solution  
   soln.SaveAs("c:\temp2\newsolution.sln")  
   msg = "Created new solution: " & soln.FullName  
   MsgBox(msg)  
End Sub  

Remarks

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 DTE.VBProjects.Item, or DTE.VCProjects.Item.

Note

Project-specific objects such as DTE.VBProjects.Item and 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.
