VCCodeModel.AddIDLLibrary Method

Adds a new library statement to a specific .idl file.

Namespace:  Microsoft.VisualStudio.VCCodeModel
Assembly:  Microsoft.VisualStudio.VCCodeModel (in Microsoft.VisualStudio.VCCodeModel.dll)

VCCodeIDLLibrary AddIDLLibrary(
	string Name,
	Object Location,
	Object Position
)

Parameters

Name
Type: System.String

Required. Specifies the name of the new library.

Location
Type: System.Object

Required. The path or file name of the .idl file to be modified. If the file does not exist, it is created automatically. The file is added to the project if it is not already a project item. If the file cannot be created and added to the project, then AddIDLLibrary fails.

Position
Type: System.Object

Optional. Default = 0. The code element after which to add the new element. If the value is a CodeElement, then the new element is added immediately after it.

Since collections begin their count at one, passing 0 indicates that the new element should be placed at the beginning of the collection. A value of -1 means the element should be placed at the end.

Call this function to insert a library statement into the specified .idl file of the VCCodeModel object.

See How to: Compile Example Code for Visual C++ Code Model Extensibility for information on how to compile and run this sample.

This example adds a library statement to the end of the Project.idl file.

Sub AddIDLLibrary()
    Dim codeModel As VCCodeModel
    codeModel = DTE.Solution.Item(1).CodeModel
    Dim idlLibrary As VCCodeIDLLibrary
    idlLibrary = codeModel.AddIDLLibrary("MyLibrary", "Project.idl", -1)
End Sub
