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 0342) was released 12 days ago, which was after the last post in this thread.
