VCCodeTypedef VCCodeTypedef VCCodeTypedef Interface


An object representing a typedef code element in the source code of a solution.

[System.Runtime.InteropServices.TypeLibType(System.Runtime.InteropServices.TypeLibTypeFlags.FDual | System.Runtime.InteropServices.TypeLibTypeFlags.FDispatchable)]
public interface VCCodeTypedef
type VCCodeTypedef = interface
Public Interface VCCodeTypedef


This example displays the name of each typedef code element in the current solution.

Sub GetAllTypedefs()  
    Dim vcCM As VCCodeModel  
    Dim vcTypedef As VCCodeTypedef  
    vcCM = DTE.Solution.Item(1).CodeModel  
    For Each vcTypedef in vcCM.Typedefs  
End Sub  


The VCCodeTypedef object is used to modify an existing typedef construct.
