Specifies a name for the Interface Identifier file; default is idlfile_i.c. Exposes the functionality of the /iid MIDL option.

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


The following sample code modifies the InterfaceIdentifierFileName 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.InterfaceIdentifierFileName = "myfile_i.c"
    End Sub
End Module
