ModuleDefinitionFile Property

Visual Studio .NET 2003

Uses the specified module definition file during executable creation. Exposes the functionality of the linker's /DEF option and the librarian's /DEF option.

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


The following sample code modifies the linker's ModuleDefinitionFile 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.ModuleDefinitionFile = "$(SolutionDir)\some.def"
    End Sub
End Module
