CodeElement.Kind Property

Gets an enumeration that defines the type of object.

Namespace:  EnvDTE
Assembly:  EnvDTE (in EnvDTE.dll)

vsCMElement Kind { get; }

Property Value

Type: EnvDTE.vsCMElement
A vsCMElement value.


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).

    // NOTE: This example requires a reference to the 
    //       System.Text namespace.

    // Before running this example, open a code document from 
    // a project.
    ProjectItem item = dte.ActiveDocument.ProjectItem;

        sb.Append(' ', level * 8);
        sb.Append(elem.Name + " [" + elem.Kind.ToString() + "]\n");

        // Call this function recursively if element has children.
