Examples

This example demonstrates how to reach the parent DTE object through the TollWindows object.

Imports EnvDTE  
Imports EnvDTE80  
Public Sub CommandWindowManip(ByVal dte As DTE2)  
    Dim myCmd As CommandWindow  
    myCmd = _applicationObject.ToolWindows.CommandWindow  
    MsgBox("The command count, obtained through the parent DTE object _  
    , is : " & myCmd.DTE.Commands.Count)  
End Sub  
using EnvDTE;  
using EnvDTE80;  
using System.Windows.Forms;  
public void CommandWindowManip (DTE2 dte)  
{  
    CommandWindow myCmd;  
    myCmd = _applicationObject.ToolWindows.CommandWindow;  
    MessageBox.Show("The command count, obtained through the parent  
 DTE object, is : " + myCmd.DTE.Commands.Count);  
}  

Remarks

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