PrecompiledHeaderFile Property

Visual Studio .NET 2003

Specifies the path and/or name of the generated precompiled header file. Exposes the functionality of the compiler's /Fp option.

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


The following sample code modifies the PrecompiledHeaderFile 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.PrecompiledHeaderFile = "MyFile.h"
    End Sub
End Module
