ResourceOnlyDLL Property

Visual Studio .NET 2003

Creates a DLL with no entry point. Setting this to true creates a resource-only DLL. Exposes the functionality of the /NOENTRY linker option.

[Visual Basic .NET]
Public Property ResourceOnlyDLL() As Boolean
[Visual Basic 6]
Property Get ResourceOnlyDLL() As Boolean
Property Let ResourceOnlyDLL( _
   ByVal NewValue As Boolean _
HRESULT __stdcall get_ResourceOnlyDLL(
   /* [out, retval] */ VARIANT_BOOL* retVal
HRESULT __stdcall put_ResourceOnlyDLL(
   /* [in] */ VARIANT_BOOL NewValue
public bool ResourceOnlyDLL {get; set;}
[JScript .NET]
public function get ResourceOnlyDLL() : Boolean
public function set ResourceOnlyDLL(
   NewValue : Boolean


The following sample code modifies the ResourceOnlyDLL 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.ResourceOnlyDLL = True
  End Sub
End Module
