VCLanguageManager Interface

An object used to validate various code elements of a C++ source file.

Namespace:  Microsoft.VisualStudio.VCCodeModel
Assembly:  Microsoft.VisualStudio.VCCodeModel (in Microsoft.VisualStudio.VCCodeModel.dll)

public interface VCLanguageManager

The VCLanguageManager type exposes the following members.

Public methodCompareTokenStreamsCompares two text streams token-wise (skipping comments and whitechars).
Public methodIsReservedNameDetermines if the specified name is a C++ reserved name.
Public methodRefreshUserKeywordsRefreshes the user-defined keywords from a file.
Public methodValidateFileNameDetermines if the specified file name is a valid C++ file name.
Public methodValidateIdentifierDetermines if the specified name is a valid C++ identifier.
Public methodValidateParameterNamesDetermines if the specified parameter list is valid.
Public methodValidateQualifiedNameDetermines if the specified name is a valid C++ qualified name.
Public methodValidateTypeDetermines if the specified expression is a valid C++ type expression.

The VCLanguageManager object allows validation of various code elements in a C++ source file, such as variable names, qualified names, C++ source file names, and so on.

See How to: Compile Example Code for Visual C++ Code Model Extensibility for information on how to compile and run this sample.

This example validates the name of a possible C++ source file. This sample assumes that a file, MyFile.cpp, exists in the current solution directory.

Sub ValidateFileName()
    Dim vcCM as VCCodeModel
    vcCM = DTE.Solution.Item(1).CodeModel
    if(DTE.VCLanguageManager.ValidateFileName("MyFile.cpp")) Then
End Sub
