CodeImport Interface

Models the use of statements that import namespaces.

Namespace:  EnvDTE80
Assembly:  EnvDTE80 (in EnvDTE80.dll)

public interface CodeImport : CodeElement

The CodeImport type exposes the following members.

Public propertyAliasGets or sets a friendly name for the referenced namespace.
Public propertyChildrenGets a collection of objects contained within this CodeImport.
Public propertyCollectionGets the CodeElements collection containing the CodeImport that supports this property.
Public propertyDTEGets the top-level extensibility object.
Public propertyEndPointGets the text point that is the location of the end of the code item.
Public propertyExtenderGets the requested Extender if it is available for this CodeElement object.
Public propertyExtenderCATIDGets the Extender category ID (CATID) for the object.
Public propertyExtenderNamesGets a list of available Extenders for the object.
Public propertyFullNameGets a fully-qualified name of the specified code element.
Public propertyInfoLocationGets the capabilities of the code model.
Public propertyIsCodeTypeGets a value indicating whether or not a CodeType object can be obtained from the CodeImport object.
Public propertyKindGets an enumeration that defines the type of object.
Public propertyLanguageGets the programming language that is used to author the CodeImport.
Public propertyNameGets or sets the name of the CodeImport object.
Public propertyNamespaceGets or sets the name of the imported namespace.
Public propertyParentGets the object containing this import.
Public propertyProjectItemGets the ProjectItem object associated with the CodeElement object.
Public propertyStartPointGets a TextPoint object that defines the beginning of the CodeImport.

Public methodGetEndPointGets a TextPoint object that marks the end of the code element definition.
Public methodGetStartPointGets a TextPoint object that marks the beginning of the code element definition.

The import statement that is used depends on the language model that it targets. The object inherits from CodeElement.


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).
