MapFileName Property

Visual Studio .NET 2003

Generates a mapfile and specifies the name for the mapfile. Exposes the functionality of the /MAP linker option.

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


GenerateMapFile will generate a map file with a default name.


The following sample code modifies the MapFileName 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 VCLinkerTool
        prj = DTE.Solution.Projects.Item(1).Object
        cfgs = prj.Configurations
        cfg = cfgs.Item(1)
        tool = cfg.Tools("VCLinkerTool")
        tool.GenerateMapFile = True
        tool.MapFileName = ""
    End Sub
End Module
