public interface CodeModel

The CodeModel type exposes the following members.

  NameDescription
Public propertyCodeElementsGets a collection of CodeElements.
Public propertyDTEGets the top-level extensibility object.
Public propertyIsCaseSensitiveGets whether the current language is case-sensitive.
Public propertyLanguageGets the programming language used to author the code.
Public propertyParentGets the immediate parent object of a CodeModel object.

The CodeModel object provides code model functionality to languages at the project level, but some members of this object are not supported in every language in Visual Studio.

The primary functions of the CodeModel object are to enable users to find any code element accessible within a project given a fully qualified name, and to determine the programming language in which the project is written.

NoteNote

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).
