The main purpose of the VCCodeMap object is to modify an existing map element. Modifications include adding and removing map entries and modifying the properties of existing map entries.

A map element is any code element beginning with a BEGIN_XXX_MAP macro and ending with a END_XXX_MAP macro. Some common examples are:

This example retrieves the first VCCodeMap object of the current solution and displays it in a message box. It assumes a default MFC project is open.

Sub GetFirstMap()
    Dim vcCM As VCCodeModel
    Dim vcMap As VCCodeMap
    vcCM = DTE.Solution.Item(1).CodeModel
    vcMap = vcCM.Maps.Item(1)
    MsgBox(vcMap.DisplayName)
End Sub
