VSProjectItem VSProjectItem VSProjectItem VSProjectItem Interface

Definition

Contains the information specific to a Visual Basic or C# project item. It is returned by the Object of the ProjectItem object when the project is a Visual Basic or C# project.

public interface class VSProjectItem
[System.Runtime.InteropServices.Guid("89FF44C6-979D-49B6-AF56-EC9509001DE4")]
[System.Runtime.InteropServices.TypeLibType(4160)]
public interface VSProjectItem

Examples

Whether a project item has been saved can be determined from the ProjectItem object. This example uses the ProjectItem of the VSProjectItem object to report whether an item has been saved since it was last changed.

' Macro Editor  
' Reports whether the specified project item has been saved since the   
' last change.  
Imports VSLangProj  
Sub IsItemSaved(ByVal aVSProjectItem As VSProjectItem)  
   If (aVSProjectItem.ProjectItem.Saved()) Then  
      MsgBox(aVSProjectItem.ProjectItem.Name & " is saved.")  
   Else  
      MsgBox(aVSProjectItem.ProjectItem.Name & " is not saved.")  
   End If  
End Sub  

Sub Test()  
   Dim pi As VSProjectItem  
   pi = CType(Dte.Solution.Projects.Item(1).ProjectItems.Item(1).Object, _  
      VSProjectItem)  
   IsItemSaved(pi)  
End Sub  

Remarks

The ProjectItems collection of a project contains the ProjectItem objects in the project. The Object property of the ProjectItem object returns an Object reference. The actual type of that reference depends on the project language. In the case of Visual Basic and C#, that object is a VSProjectItem object. To use the VSProjectItem class members, the Object property reference must be explicitly converted to VSProjectItem. The example below demonstrates this conversion using the Visual Basic CType function. The PrjKind enumeration is used to test for the project's type before the conversion.
