Imports VSLangProj  
Private Function GetProjectName(ByVal refs As References) _  
   As String  
   Return refs.ContainingProject.Name  
End Function  
  
Sub TestGetProjectName()  
   ' First project is a Visual Basic or C# project.  
   Dim theVSProject As VSProject = _  
      CType(DTE.Solution.Projects.Item(1).Object, VSProject)  
   Dim refs As References = theVSProject.References  
   MsgBox(GetProjectName(refs))  
End Sub
