Gets the top-level extensibility object.

System_CAPS_pubpropertyEndPoint

Gets the text point that is the location of the end of the code item.

System_CAPS_pubpropertyExtender(String)

Gets the requested Extender if it is available for this CodeElement object.

System_CAPS_pubpropertyExtenderCATID

Gets the Extender category ID (CATID) for the object.

System_CAPS_pubpropertyExtenderNames

Gets a list of available Extenders for the object.

System_CAPS_pubpropertyFullName

Gets a fully-qualified name of the specified code element.

System_CAPS_pubpropertyInfoLocation

Gets the capabilities of the code model.

System_CAPS_pubpropertyIsCodeType

Indicates whether or not a CodeType object can be obtained from the CodeElement object.

System_CAPS_pubpropertyKind

Gets an enumeration that defines the type of object.

System_CAPS_pubpropertyLanguage

Gets the programming language that is used to author the code.

System_CAPS_pubpropertyName

Sets or gets the name of the object.

System_CAPS_pubpropertyProjectItem

Gets the ProjectItem object associated with the CodeElement object.

System_CAPS_pubpropertyStartPoint

Gets a TextPoint object that defines the beginning of the code item.

NameDescription
System_CAPS_pubmethodGetEndPoint(vsCMPart)

Returns a TextPoint object that marks the end of the code element definition.

System_CAPS_pubmethodGetStartPoint(vsCMPart)

Returns a TextPoint object that marks the beginning of the code element definition.

A code element can be any fragment of code, but generally, there is a CodeElement object for each definition or declarative syntax in a language. This means that for most top-level definitions or declarations in a file, or for any syntactic form in a class definition, and so forth, there is a corresponding CodeElement object.

System_CAPS_noteNote

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).
