|Collection||Gets the Projects collection containing the object supporting this property.|
|ConfigurationManager||Gets the ConfigurationManager object for this .|
|DTE||Gets the top-level extensibility object.|
|Extender||Gets the requested Extender object if it is available for this object.|
|ExtenderCATID||Gets the Extender category ID (CATID) for the object.|
|ExtenderNames||Gets a list of available Extenders for the object.|
|FileName||Infrastructure. Microsoft Internal Use Only.|
|FullName||Gets the full path and name of the object's file.|
|Globals||Gets the Globals object containing values that may be saved in the solution (.sln) file, the project file, or in the user's profile data.|
|IsDirty||Infrastructure. Microsoft Internal Use Only.|
|Kind||Gets a GUID string indicating the kind or type of the object.|
|Name||Gets or sets the name of the object.|
|Object||Gets an interface or object that can be accessed by name at run time.|
|ParentProjectItem||Gets a ProjectItem object for the nested project in the host project.|
|ProjectItems||Gets a ProjectItems collection for the object.|
|Properties||Gets a collection of all properties that pertain to the object.|

|UniqueName||Gets a unique string value that allows you to differentiate between similarly named projects.|
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.
