CodeStruct2.AddFunction Method

Creates a new function code construct and inserts the code in the correct location.

) : CodeFunction


  • Name
    Type: System.String
    Required. The name of the new function.
  • Kind
    Type: EnvDTE.vsCMFunction
    Required. The vsCMFunction constant indicating the type of function, such as whether the function is a property-get, a method, and so forth.
  • Position
    Type: System.Object
    Optional. Default = 0. The code element after which to add the new element. If the value is a CodeElement, then the new element is added immediately after it.
    If the value is a Long data type, then AddFunction indicates the element after which to add the new element.
    Because collections begin their count at 1, passing 0 indicates that the new element should be placed at the beginning of the collection. A value of -1 means the element should be placed at the end.

Return Value

Type: EnvDTE.CodeFunction
A CodeFunction object.


CodeStruct.AddFunction(String, vsCMFunction, Object, Object, vsCMAccess, Object)


Visual C++ requires the colon-separated (::) format for its fully qualified type names. All other languages support the period-separated format.

The correctness of the arguments is determined by the language behind the code model.


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).
