I'm trying to get an astnode for a visual basic file stored on disk. I want to use this node to perform so dynamic code rewriting. How can I get from a disk file to an AST Node ?

BTW: it would help if I don't need to pass via something visual for this task.

Hello, please take a look at our Document Outline QuickStart in the sample project. That shows you how you can load a document from disk and process the CompilationUnit that was parsed.

Ok, thanks a lot. Feel a little stupid now but the object model is not all that trivial. It works, though.
The latest build of this product (v2018.1 build 0341) was released 8 months ago, which was after the last post in this thread.
