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


The following sample code modifies the GenerateTypeLibrary 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.GenerateTypeLibrary = True
    End Sub
End Module
