Namespace:   EnvDTE
Assembly:  EnvDTE (in EnvDTE.dll)

CodeFunction Getter { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: EnvDTE.CodeFunction

A CodeFunction object.

Getter returns the code function, if any, that is the getter of this property.


This property is read-only for code elements from Visual Basic source code.

Also, 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).
