TypeLibraryName Property (VCMidlTool Object)

Visual Studio .NET 2003

Specifies the name of the type library file. The default is idlfile.tlb. Exposes the functionality of the /tlb MIDL option.

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


The following sample code modifies the TypeLibraryName 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.TypeLibraryName = "$(IntDir)/somename.tlb"
    End Sub
End Module
