Hello all!

I have a question about PDB Reader. I need to find location of method header in source code.

Is it possible to find such location with CCI pdb infrastructure?

Best regards, Michal.

That information is simply not captured in the PDB file of a managed language such as C# and VB. Others that have encountered the same issue resort to various parsing heuristics. However, that is rather brittle unless you have a full blown parser that also understands project files. Inside VS the VS Code Model is one way to do this.

I know that this information is available via CodeModel, but i need to handle a large projects and CodeModel is to heavy for my needs. So, i think that parser is the only way for me :/.

Thank You for the info.
