OutputDirectory Property

Visual Studio .NET 2003

Specifies directory to place output; by default, uses the project directory.

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

Remarks

Wizards will set this property. Do not use the project directory for the project outputs.

Example

The following sample code modifies the VCConfiguration object's OutputDirectory 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
        prj = DTE.Solution.Projects.Item(1).Object
        cfgs = prj.Configurations
        cfg = cfgs.Item(1)
        cfg.OutputDirectory = "\test"
    End Sub
End Module
