Project Interface

Represents a project in the integrated development environment (IDE).

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

public interface class Project
/** @attribute GuidAttribute("866311E6-C887-4143-9833-645F5B93F6F1") */ 
public interface Project
public interface Project

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 Project 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.

Sub ProjectExample()
' This function creates a solution and adds a Visual Basic Console
' project to it. 
   Dim soln As Solution2
   Dim proj As Project
   Dim msg As String
' Create a reference to the solution.
   soln = DTE.Solution
' Create a new solution.
   soln.Create("c:\temp2", "MyNewSolution")
' Create a new Visual Basic Console application project. 
' Adjust the save path as needed.
   Dim fileN As String
   fileN = soln.GetProjectTemplate("", "VisualBasic")
   proj = soln.AddFromTemplate(fileN, "c:\temp2", "My New Project", True)
' Save the new solution
   msg = "Created new solution: " & soln.FullName
End Sub
