Ever wondered how Visual Studio come to know that a class has been created?
How Code editor understand if a function or a property or a namespace has been created?

The CodeDOM provides types that represent many common types of source code elements. You can design a program that builds a source code model using CodeDOM elements to assemble an object graph. This object graph can be rendered as source code using a CodeDOM code generator for a supported programming language. The CodeDOM can also be used to compile source code into a binary assembly.

Some common uses for the CodeDOM include:

Templated code generation: generating code for ASP.NET, XML Web services client proxies, code wizards, designers, or other code-emitting mechanisms.


Dynamic compilation: supporting code compilation in single or multiple languages.
