Public Module Module1
   Dim WithEvents bldevents As BuildEvents
   Dim applicationObject As EnvDTE.DTE

   Sub EventsExample()
      Dim addInInstance As EnvDTE.AddIn

      applicationObject = CType(Application, EnvDTE.DTE)
      bldevents = CType(applicationObject.Events.BuildEvents, EnvDTE.BuildEvents)
   End Sub

   Private Sub bldevents_OnBuildDone(ByVal Scope As EnvDTE.vsBuildScope, ByVal Action As EnvDTE.vsBuildAction) Handles bldevents.OnBuildDone
