CodeEvent.StartPoint CodeEvent.StartPoint CodeEvent.StartPoint CodeEvent.StartPoint CodeEvent.StartPoint Property


Gets the location in the source file marked as a beginning of the code event element.

 property EnvDTE::TextPoint ^ StartPoint { EnvDTE::TextPoint ^ get(); };
 property EnvDTE::TextPoint ^ StartPoint { EnvDTE::TextPoint ^ get(); };
[get: System.Runtime.InteropServices.DispId(10)]
[get: System.Runtime.InteropServices.TypeLibFunc(1024)]
public EnvDTE.TextPoint StartPoint { get; }
member this.StartPoint : EnvDTE.TextPoint
Public ReadOnly Property StartPoint As TextPoint
Property Value


The following example demonstrates how to use the StartPoint property.

public static void StartPoint(EnvDTE80.DTE2 dte)  
    TextSelection objTextSel;  
    EnvDTE80.CodeEvent codeEvent;  
    objTextSel = (TextSelection)dte.ActiveDocument.Selection;  
    codeEvent = (EnvDTE80.CodeEvent)objTextSel.ActivePoint.get_CodeElement(vsCMElement.vsCMElementEvent);  

Start point column number: " + codeEvent.StartPoint.DisplayColumn, "Testing StartPoint Property"); }


The edit point location is immediately after the last character of the code event element (including any semicolon, terminating syntax, or separating syntax). Getting the property implicitly opens the source file if it can be opened. Some languages, however, cannot open arbitrary files on the disk and can only open files in currently open solution.


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.
