[C#]

public void OnConnection(object application, ext_ConnectMode connectMode, object addInInst, ref Array custom)  
{  
    applicationObject = (DTE2)application;  
    addInInstance = (AddIn)addInInst;  
    DTESample(((DTE2)applicationObject));  
}  
  
public void DTESample(DTE2 dte)  
{  
    Project aProject = null;  
    VSProject2 aVSProject = null;  
    aProject = applicationObject.Solution.Projects.Item(1);  
    aVSProject = ((VSProject2)  
( applicationObject.Solution.Projects.Item(1).Object));  
    // Reach the DTE object through a VSProject object.  
aVSProject.Project.DTE.ItemOperations.NewFile  
(@"General\Text File","", "{00000000-0000-0000-0000-000000000000}" );  
}   

Remarks

In Visual Studio, the DTE object is the root of the automation model, which other object models often call "Application".
