TreatWChar_tAsBuiltInType Property

Visual Studio .NET 2003

Treats wchar_t as a built-in type. Exposes the functionality of the compiler's /Zc:wchar_t option.

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


The following sample code modifies the TreatWChar_tAsBuiltInType 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.TreatWChar_tAsBuiltInType = False
    End Sub
End Module
