Sub SelectedItemsExample()  
   Dim SelItems As SelectedItems  
   Dim SelItemObj As SelectedItem  
   Dim SelContain As SelectionContainer  
   Dim SelItem As SelectedItem  
   Dim NameStr As String  

   SelItems = DTE.SelectedItems  
   ' List the number of items selected.  
   If SelItems.MultiSelect = True Then  
      MsgBox("You have " & SelItems.Count & " items selected in Solution Explorer.")  
   End If  

   ' Set a reference to the first selected item.  
   SelItemObj = SelItems.Item(1)  
   ' List the names of the project or project items under the selected   
   ' item.  
   For Each SelItem In SelItemObj.Collection  
      NameStr = NameStr & SelItem.Name  
      If TypeOf SelItem.Project Is Project Then  
         NameStr = NameStr & " Project-" & SelItem.Project.Name & vbCrLf  
         If TypeOf SelItem.ProjectItem Is ProjectItem Then  
             NameStr = NameStr & SelItem.ProjectItem.FileNames(1) & vbCrLf  
         End If  
      End If  
   MsgBox("You selected: " & NameStr)  
End Sub  


There is always a SelectedItems collection, even when there are no project items. For example, if Solution Explorer has focus and a project node is selected, then there is one SelectedItem object. The selected item's Project property refers to the selected project, and its ProjectItem property is Null.
