A VCCodeElements collection object is a collection of one or more VCCodeElement objects. Each object in the VCCodeElements collection object represents an individual code element (such as a definition or element of declarative syntax).

See How to: Compile Example Code for Visual C++ Code Model Extensibility for information on how to compile and run this sample.

This example displays the names of all code element objects declared at the global namespace level of the existing project (alphabetically).
