        Shared Sub Main()
            Dim moduleArray() As [Module]

            'In a simple project with only one module, the module at index 
            ' 0 will be the module containing these classes. 
            Dim myModule As [Module] = moduleArray(0)

            Dim tArray() As Type

            tArray = myModule.FindTypes([Module].FilterTypeNameIgnoreCase, "my*")
