OptimizeForProcessor Property

Visual Studio .NET 2003

Optimizes code to favor a specific X86 processor; use Blended to work best across all processors. Exposes the functionality of the compiler's /G5 and /G6 options.

[Visual Basic .NET]
Public Property OptimizeForProcessor() As ProcessorOptimizeOption
[Visual Basic 6]
Property Get OptimizeForProcessor() As ProcessorOptimizeOption
Property Let OptimizeForProcessor( _
   ByVal NewValue As ProcessorOptimizeOption _
HRESULT __stdcall get_OptimizeForProcessor(
   /* [out, retval] */ ProcessorOptimizeOption* retVal
HRESULT __stdcall put_OptimizeForProcessor(
   /* [in] */ ProcessorOptimizeOption NewValue
public ProcessorOptimizeOption OptimizeForProcessor {get; set;}
[JScript .NET]
public function get OptimizeForProcessor() : ProcessorOptimizeOption
public function set OptimizeForProcessor(
   NewValue : ProcessorOptimizeOption


Use the ProcessorOptimizeOption enumeration to change the value of this property.


The following sample code modifies the OptimizeForProcessor 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.OptimizeForProcessor = ProcessorOptimizeOption.procOptimizeBlended
    End Sub
End Module
