# Command Interface

Visual Studio 2005

Represents a command in the environment.

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

## Syntax

```[GuidAttribute("5FE10FB0-91A1-4E55-BAAA-ECCAE5CCEB94")]
public interface Command
```
```/** @attribute GuidAttribute("5FE10FB0-91A1-4E55-BAAA-ECCAE5CCEB94") */
public interface Command

## Remarks

Reference this object by using Item.

You can reference this object a number of ways, such as by using the canonical name or the GUID ID. The easiest way to invoke most commands is by using ExecuteCommand. You can use Raise for the rare instances when you must invoke a command without a name.

## Example

```' Macro code.
Sub CommandExample()
' Creates a text document listing all command names.
Dim Cmd As Command
Dim Doc As Document
Dim TxtDoc As TextDocument

' Create a new text document.
DTE.ItemOperations.NewFile ("General\Text File")
Set Doc = ActiveDocument
Set TxtDoc = Doc.Object("TextDocument")
For Each Cmd In Commands
If (Cmd.Name <> "") Then
TxtDoc.Selection.Text = Cmd.Name & vbLF
TxtDoc.Selection.Collapse
End If
Next
End Sub
```
