ObjectFile Property

Visual Studio .NET 2003

Specifies a name to override the default object file name. Exposes the functionality of the compiler's /Fo option.

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


The following sample code modifies the ObjectFile 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.ObjectFile = "$(IntDir)/MyFile"
    End Sub
End Module
