VCCodeElement Interface

Definition

An object providing access to any code element within a source file.

[System.Runtime.InteropServices.Guid("46AB500A-F64B-4BA3-B5F4-102E7FEC2412")]
[System.Runtime.InteropServices.TypeLibType(System.Runtime.InteropServices.TypeLibTypeFlags.FDual | System.Runtime.InteropServices.TypeLibTypeFlags.FDispatchable)]
public interface VCCodeElement
Attributes

Examples

This example assigns a newly added class to a VCCodeElement object.

Sub GetVCCodeElement()  
    Dim vcCM As VCCodeModel  
    Dim vcCodeElement As VCCodeElement  
    vcCM = DTE.Solution.Item(1).CodeModel  
    vcCodeElement = vcCM.AddClass("MyClass", "MyClass.h")  
End Sub  

Remarks

The VCCodeElement object provides code model functionality to existing Visual C++ integrated development environment (IDE) solutions at the code element level. Primarily, this object is used to find and modify any code element (class declaration, identifier, function definition, and so on) accessible within a source file.

Note

A large part of the functionality of this object is provided by the Visual Studio CodeElement object. For more information, see CodeElement object.

See How to: Compile Example Code for Visual C++ Code Model Extensibility for information on how to compile and run this sample.
