Public methodValidateMemberName

The VCCodeInterface object represents an interface code element. Primarily, the object is used to access or modify the elements of an existing interface.


A large part of the functionality of this object is provided by the Visual Studio CodeInterface object. For more information, see CodeInterface object.

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

This example retrieves the first VCCodeInterface object of the current solution and displays it in a message box. It assumes a project containing interfaces is open.

[Visual Basic]

Sub GetFirstInterface()
    Dim vcCM As VCCodeModel
    Dim vcInterface As VCCodeInterface
    vcCM = DTE.Solution.Item(1).CodeModel
    vcInterface = vcCM.Interfaces.Item(1)
End Sub
