Represents a project in the integrated development environment (IDE).
Assembly: EnvDTE (in EnvDTE.dll)
Every project in the solution has a project automation interface. In rare cases, this is a generic, unmodeled project implementation that returns the project's name.
Every tool in the environment that has a project has a object.
Reference this object by using DTE.Solution.Item or by using a specific language's objects, such as DTE.VBProjects.Item, or DTE.VCProjects.Item.
Project-specific objects such as DTE.VBProjects.Item and DTE.VCProjects.Item are located in other assemblies. Visual Basic and Visual C# project objects are located in VSLangProj, and Visual C++ project objects are located in Microsoft.VisualStudio.VCProjectEngine. See Extending Visual Basic and Visual C# Projects and Visual C++ Project Model for more information about programming against project-specific objects.
