CompileOnly Property

Visual Studio .NET 2003

Specifies compilation only, with no linking. Exposes the functionality of the compiler's /c option.

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


The following sample code modifies the CompileOnly 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 VCCLCompilerTool
        prj = DTE.Solution.Projects.Item(1).Object
        cfgs = prj.Configurations
        cfg = cfgs.Item(1)
        tool = cfg.Tools("VCCLCompilerTool")
        tool.CompileOnly = False
    End Sub
End Module
