IVCCollection Interface 

An IVCCollection object contains the functionality that can be exercised on a collections object.

Namespace: Microsoft.VisualStudio.VCProjectEngine
Assembly: Microsoft.VisualStudio.VCProjectEngine (in microsoft.visualstudio.vcprojectengine.dll)

[GuidAttribute("238B5170-2429-11D7-8BF6-00B0D03DAA06")] 
public interface IVCCollection : IEnumerable
/** @attribute GuidAttribute("238B5170-2429-11D7-8BF6-00B0D03DAA06") */ 
public interface IVCCollection extends IEnumerable
GuidAttribute("238B5170-2429-11D7-8BF6-00B0D03DAA06") 
public interface IVCCollection extends IEnumerable

For example, the Files property of a VCFilter object is a collection of the files in a folder.

The following example demonstrates how to use the EnablePREfast and AdditionalOptions properties to set the /analyze:WX- switch. (Both properties are required to do this.) Specifying /analyze:WX- means that code analysis warnings will not be treated as errors when compiling with /WX. For more information, see /analyze (Enterprise Code Analysis).

To run this example, enter and run this example as outlined in How to: Compile and Run the Automation Object Model Code Examples. Then, in the new instance of Visual Studio, load a Visual C++ project and use the Add-in Manager to activate the add-in.
