CodeElements contains all elements in source files, members of classes, and so forth. It is automatically updated if an item is added to or removed from an open document or through the code model.

You can navigate through code elements using ProjectItem.FileCodeModel.CodeElements.


The values of code model elements such as classes, structs, functions, attributes, delegates, and so forth can be non-deterministic after making certain kinds of edits, meaning that their values cannot be relied upon to always remain the same. For more information, see the section Code Model Element Values Can Change in Discovering Code by Using the Code Model (Visual Basic).
