Specifies one or more forced include files. Exposes the functionality of the compiler's /FI option.

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


The following sample code modifies the ForcedIncludeFiles 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.ForcedIncludeFiles = "c:\a.h;d:\b.h"
    End Sub
End Module
