Public ReadOnly Property DTE As DTE
Property Value

A DTE object.

Examples

This example creates a new solution folder and adds a project to it from an existing file. It then uses a message box to display the caption of the main window, obtained through the DTE object. Before running this example, create a "Projects" folder off your main drive ("C:" in this example), and create a Visual C# class library project, named "ClassLibrary1" in that folder. You need to also open a project in the Visual Studio integrated development environment (IDE) before running this example.

Remarks

In Visual Studio, the DTE object is the root of the automation model, which other object models often call "Application".
