This example validates a method name and then, if valid, adds a method with that name to the class.

Sub AddMethod()
    Dim vcCM As VCCodeModel
    Dim classElement As VCCodeClass
    Dim type As String
    vcCM = DTE.Solution.Item(1).CodeModel
    classElement = vcCM.Classes.Item(1)
    type = "int"
    If (vcCM.ValidateMember("Method1", vsCMElement.vsCMElementFunction, type)) Then
        classElement.AddFunction("Method1", vsCMFunction.vsCMFunctionFunction, type)
    End If
End Sub
