Member nameDescription

Information is obtained from external files. Information is available only from metadata, from inspecting a DLL, or from frozen sources (such as shipping MFC sources). You may be able to get a StartPoint and EditPoint, but you cannot edit them, and you cannot set properties or modify the text behind the code element.


No additional information is available. All you have is a code model object that has a name. By its context in the source, you might, for example, infer that the name should be a class or interface. Because the code model could not resolve the name to any real information, however, the object is otherwise useless.


Indicates if the code model element is located in the same project file. This is important when attempting to navigate to a specific code element.


Information is obtained from a virtual project.
