Sub IsSameObject()
    Dim vcElements As VCCodeElements
    Dim codeElem1 As VCCodeElement
    Dim codeElem2 As VCCodeElement
    vcElements = DTE.Solution.Item(1).CodeModel.Classes
    codeElem1 = vcElements.Item(1)
    codeElem2 = vcElements.Item(2)
    If (codeElem1.IsSelf(codeElem2)) Then
        MsgBox(codeElem1.Name + " and " + codeElem2.Name + " represent the same object.")
