VCProject.AddConfiguration Method

Adds a configuration to the current project.

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

void AddConfiguration(
	string ConfigurationName
)

Parameters

ConfigurationName
Type: System.String

Required. The configuration name.

The Configurations property returns the configurations that are on the current project.

To have this configuration be useful, you must call the CopyTo method to copy basic settings from an existing configuration to the new configuration. Otherwise, you must set even the most rudimentary options yourself.

See How to: Compile Example Code for Project Model Extensibility for information about how to compile and run this example.

The following example uses the AddConfiguration method in the integrated development environment (IDE):

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

Public Module Module1
    Sub Test()
        Dim prj As VCProject
        Dim cfg As VCConfiguration
        prj = DTE.Solution.Projects.Item(1).Object
        prj.AddConfiguration("addedConfig")
    End Sub
End Module
