MergeSections Property

Visual Studio .NET 2003

Causes the linker to merge section from into section to; if section to does not exist, section from is renamed to. Exposes the functionality of the /MERGE linker option.

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


The following sample code modifies the MergeSections 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 VCLinkerTool
    prj = DTE.Solution.Projects.Item(1).Object
    cfgs = prj.Configurations
    cfg = cfgs.Item(1)
    tool = cfg.Tools("VCLinkerTool")
    tool.MergeSections = ".rdata=.text"
  End Sub
End Module
