WholeProgramOptimization Property

Visual Studio .NET 2003

Enables cross-module optimizations by delaying code generation to link time. Exposes the functionality of the compiler's /GL option.

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


It is better to set the VCConfiguration object's WholeProgramOptimization property rather than to set the compiler property of the same name and the linker's LinkTimeCodegeneration property.

The compiler's version of this property and the linker's LinkTimeCodeGeneration property are not available via the property pages.


The following sample code modifies the VCConfiguration object's WholeProgramOptimization property in the development environment:

' add reference to Microsoft.VisualStudio.VCProjectEngine
Imports EnvDTE
Imports Microsoft.VisualStudio.VCProjectEngine

Public Module Module1
    Sub Test()
        Dim Test As Boolean
        Dim prj As VCProject
        Dim cfgs As IVCCollection
        Dim cfg As VCConfiguration
        Dim MyDbg As VCDebugSettings
        prj = DTE.Solution.Projects.Item(1).Object
        cfgs = prj.Configurations
        cfg = cfgs.Item(1)
        cfg.WholeProgramOptimization = True
    End Sub
End Module
