The VCCodeUsing object represents a #using code element in a source file, allowing access to information about that specific code element.

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 VCCodeUsing object of the current solution and displays it in a message box.

Sub GetFirstUsing()
    Dim vcCM As VCCodeModel
    Dim vcUsing As VCCodeUsing
    vcCM = DTE.Solution.Item(1).CodeModel
    vcUsing = vcCM.Usings.Item(1)
    MsgBox(vcUsing.DisplayName)
End Sub
