IVsaEngine Members

Defines the methods and properties that a script engine must support and provides programmatic access to the script engine.

The following tables list the members exposed by the IVsaEngine type.

  Name Description
Public property Assembly Gets a reference to the running assembly generated by the Run method.
Public property Evidence Provides evidence for the purpose of validating the current object's identity.
Public property GenerateDebugInfo Sets or gets a Boolean value that signifies whether the script engine produces debug information when the Compile method is called.
Public property IsCompiled  
Public property IsDirty Gets a Boolean value that reports whether the script engine's source state has changed since the last save operation, or since the script engine was originally loaded.
Public property IsRunning Gets a Boolean value that reports whether the script engine is currently in run mode.
Public property Items Gets the IVsaItems collection of IVsaItem objects, which represent all items added to the script engine using the CreateItem method, including code items, reference items, and global items.
Public property Language Gets the nonlocalized name of the programming language supported by the script engine.
Public property LCID Gets or sets the geographical locale and language in which to report exception messages.
Public property Name Sets or gets the display name of the script engine that is used primarily for identifying individual script engines to users in a hosted environment.
Public property RootMoniker Sets or gets a script engine's root moniker.
Public property RootNamespace Sets or gets the root namespace used by the script engine.
Public property Site Sets or gets the host-implemented IVsaSite object that is used by the script engine to communicate with the host.
Public property Version Gets the current version of the language compiler supported by the script engine, in the form Major.Minor.Revision.Build.

  Name Description
Public method Close Closes the script engine and releases all resources. If the script engine is currently running, the Reset method is called first.
Public method Compile Causes the script engine to compile the existing source state.
Public method GetOption Gets implementation-specific options for a script engine.
Public method InitNew Provides a notification that the initialization phase is complete and that the script engine is prepared for the addition of IVsaItem objects.
Public method IsValidIdentifier Checks whether the supplied identifier is valid for the script engine.
Public method LoadSourceState Directs the script engine to load source items from their point of persistence, as specified by the host-provided object that implements the IVsaPersistSite interface.
Public method Reset Removes the script engine from the running state and disconnects automatically bound event handlers.
Public method RevokeCache Invalidates the cached assembly for a script engine, as specified by its root moniker.
Public method Run Initiates execution of compiled code in the script engine and binds all event handlers.
Public method SaveCompiledState Saves the compiled state of the script engine; optionally, it also saves debugging information.
Public method SaveSourceState Directs the script engine to persist its source state to the specified IVsaPersistSite object.
Public method SetOption Sets implementation-specific options for a script engine.
