ProxyFileName Property

Visual Studio .NET 2003

Specifies the name of the proxy file; default is idlfile_p.c. Exposes the functionality of the /proxy MIDL option.

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


The following sample code modifies the ProxyFileName 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.ProxyFileName = "myfile_p.c"
    End Sub
End Module
