Examples

This example creates a Web references folder, if one does not already exist, and displays some of the folder properties in a message box. To run this example as an add-in, see How to: Compile and Run the Automation Object Model Code Examples. Open a Visual Basic or Visual C# project before running this example.

Remarks

A project's Web references may be retrieved by accessing the ProjectItems property of the WebReferencesFolder.

A project contains at most one Web References folder. The folder may be created by using the CreateWebReferencesFolder method. In addition, the folder is created automatically when the first Web reference is added to the project by using the CreateWebReferencesFolder method.

In a Visual Basic or Visual C# project, the Kind property of the WebReferencesFolder project item is always vsProjectItemKindPhysicalFolder because Visual Basic and Visual C# projects support only physical files.
