An object defining a property construct in a source file.

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

public interface CodeProperty

The CodeProperty type exposes the following members.

Public propertyAccessSets or gets the access modifier of this item.
Public propertyAttributesGets a collection of all of the attributes for the parent object.
Public propertyChildrenGets a collection of objects contained within this CodeProperty object.
Public propertyCollectionGets the collection containing the CodeProperty object supporting this property.
Public propertyCommentGets or sets the comment associated with the code element.
Public propertyDocCommentGets the document comment for the current code model element.
Public propertyDTEGets the top-level extensibility object.
Public propertyEndPointGets the edit point that is the location of the end of the code item.
Public propertyExtenderGets the requested Extender if it is available for this object.
Public propertyExtenderCATIDGets the Extender category ID (CATID) for the object.
Public propertyExtenderNamesGets a list of available Extenders for the object.
Public propertyFullNameGets the full path and name of the object's file.
Public propertyGetterSets or gets an object defining the code to return a property.
Public propertyInfoLocationGets the capabilities of the code model object.
Public propertyIsCodeTypeGets whether a CodeType object can be obtained from this object.
Public propertyKindGets an enumeration indicating the type of object.
Public propertyLanguageGets the programming language used to author the code.
Public propertyNameSets or gets the name of the object.
Public propertyParentGets the immediate parent object of a CodeProperty object.
Public propertyProjectItemGets the ProjectItem associated with the given object.
Public propertyPrototypeReturns a string holding the stub definition of this object.
Public propertySetterSets or gets an object defining the code to set a property.
Public propertyStartPointReturns a TextPoint object that defines the beginning of the code item.
Public propertyTypeSets or gets an object representing the programmatic type.

Public methodAddAttributeCreates a new attribute code construct and inserts the code in the correct location.
Public methodGetEndPointGets a TextPoint object that marks the end of the code element definition.
Public methodGetStartPointGets a TextPoint object that defines the beginning of the code element definition.

The CodeProperty object represents a property and determines how properties are defined in the various languages. For example, in Visual Basic, if you have two separate functions, one for getting a value and one for putting it, together they form a property. In Visual C#, however, there is one declaration form for declaring a property and specifying whether it has a getter and a setter.


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).
