VCProjectConfigurationProperties.ManagedExtensions Property 

Specifies that this configuration uses Visual C++. Exposes the functionality of the C++ compiler's /clr option.

Namespace: Microsoft.VisualStudio.VCProject
Assembly: Microsoft.VisualStudio.VCProject (in microsoft.visualstudio.vcproject.dll)

compileAsManagedOptions ManagedExtensions { get; set; }
/** @property */
compileAsManagedOptions get_ManagedExtensions ()

/** @property */
void set_ManagedExtensions (/** @attribute InAttribute() */ compileAsManagedOptions Managed)

function get ManagedExtensions () : compileAsManagedOptions

function set ManagedExtensions (Managed : compileAsManagedOptions)

Property Value

A compileAsManagedOptions enumeration.

If you set this property instead of the compiler tool's CompileAsManaged property, then other, related properties for the linker and VCWebServiceProxyGeneratorTool are set for you as well. Setting the compiler's CompileAsManaged property directly overrides the ManagedExtensions property on the configuration.

See Samples for Project Model Extensibility for information on how to compile and run this sample.

[Visual Basic]

The following example code modifies the VCConfiguration object's ManagedExtensions property in the development environment:

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

Public Module Module1
    Sub Test()
        Dim MyString As String
        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.ManagedExtensions = True
    End Sub
End Module
