ErrorCheckRefPointers Property

Visual Studio .NET 2003

Specifies error check of reference pointers for NULL. Exposes the functionality of the /error MIDL option.

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


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