ForcedUsingFiles Property

Visual Studio .NET 2003

Forces the use of a file name, as if it had been passed to the #using directive. Exposes the functionality of the compiler's /FU option.

[Visual Basic .NET]
Public Property ForcedUsingFiles() As String
[Visual Basic 6]
Property Get ForcedUsingFiles() As String
Property Let ForcedUsingFiles( _
   ByVal NewValue As String _
HRESULT __stdcall get_ForcedUsingFiles(
   /* [out, retval] */ BSTR* retVal
HRESULT __stdcall put_ForcedUsingFiles(
   /* [in] */ BSTR NewValue
public string ForcedUsingFiles {get; set;}
[JScript .NET]
public function get ForcedUsingFiles() : String
public function set ForcedUsingFiles(
   NewValue : String


The following sample code modifies the ForcedUsingFiles property in the development environment:

' add reference to Microsoft.VisualStudio.VCProjectEngine
Imports EnvDTE
Imports Microsoft.VisualStudio.VCProjectEngine

Public Module Module1
    Sub Test()
        Dim prj As VCProject
        Dim cfgs, tools As IVCCollection
        Dim cfg As VCConfiguration
        Dim tool As VCCLCompilerTool
        prj = DTE.Solution.Projects.Item(1).Object
        cfgs = prj.Configurations
        cfg = cfgs.Item(1)
        tool = cfg.Tools("VCCLCompilerTool")
        tool.ForcedIncludeFiles = "myfile.dll"
    End Sub
End Module
