|Collection||Gets the CodeElements collection containing the CodeElement that supports this property.|
|DTE||Gets the top-level extensibility object.|
|EndPoint||Gets the text point that is the location of the end of the code item.|
|Extender||Gets the requested Extender if it is available for this CodeElement object.|
|ExtenderCATID||Gets the Extender category ID (CATID) for the object.|
|ExtenderNames||Gets a list of available Extenders for the object.|
|FullName||Gets a fully-qualified name of the specified code element.|
|InfoLocation||Gets the capabilities of the code model.|
|IsCodeType||Indicates whether or not a CodeType object can be obtained from the object.|
|Kind||Gets an enumeration that defines the type of object.|
|Language||Gets the programming language that is used to author the code.|
|Name||Sets or gets the name of the object.|
|ProjectItem||Gets the ProjectItem object associated with the object.|
|StartPoint||Gets a TextPoint object that defines the beginning of the code item.|
A code element can be any fragment of code, but generally, there is a object for each definition or declarative syntax in a language. This means that for most top-level definitions or declarations in a file, or for any syntactic form in a class definition, and so forth, there is a corresponding object.
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).
