Enables generation of a program database .pdb file. Exposes the functionality of the /PDB linker option.

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


The following sample code modifies the ProgramDatabaseFile 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.GenerateDebugInformation = True
        tool.ProgramDatabaseFile = "$(OutDir)/my.pdb"
    End Sub
End Module
