AdditionalIncludeDirectories Property

Visual Studio .NET 2003

Specifies one or more directories to add to the include path. Exposes the functionality of the compiler's /I option, the MIDL compiler's /I option, and the Resource Compiler's /I option.

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


If specifying more than one directory, use semicolons to delimit the list.


The following sample code modifies MIDL's AdditionalIncludeDirectories 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 VCMidlTool
        Dim oldDeps As String
        prj = DTE.Solution.Projects.Item(1).Object
        cfgs = prj.Configurations
        cfg = cfgs.Item(1)
        tool = cfg.Tools("VCMidlTool")
        oldDeps = tool.AdditionalIncludeDirectories
        tool.AdditionalIncludeDirectories = oldDeps + "c:\dir1;d:\dir2"
    End Sub
End Module
