Returning types of members using the VB IDE

I am trying to make a program to analyze data in all my projects.  For this part I want to analyze all variables to see when objects are being created and destroyed.  Currently I am going through all projects, components, then members.  When I loop through the members I want to get all variables.  I can do this fine.  What i am having problems with is finding what type of variable these member variables are.  Does anyone know how to get what type of variable a member is?

you can also pass in a command button name into TypeName to get what type it is.

If it is a command button, it will return CommandButton.
For the example just now, it will return Integer.

Good Luck. ^_^

for analysing your project in VB you can use the Project analyser tool available on www.aivosto.com.
this tool not only helps you analyse the variables but you can also generate reports based on which u can improve your coding standards.

I can't just do a VarType or TypeName on a variable.  This is not a vb program, this is a vb addin.  I need to use the VB IDE to figure out what type of variable I have.

Also, I am making my own addin.  I dont want to go buy one.  I don't believe Project Analyzer does what I am trying to do.  That is why I am doing this.
