HeaderFileName Property

Visual Studio .NET 2003

Specifies name of generated header file; default is idlfile.h. Exposes the functionality of the /h MIDL option.

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


The following sample code modifies the HeaderFileName 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 VCMidlTool
        prj = DTE.Solution.Projects.Item(1).Object
        cfgs = prj.Configurations
        cfg = cfgs.Item(1)
        tool = cfg.Tools("VCMIDLTool")
        tool.HeaderFileName = "c:\somename.h"
    End Sub
End Module
