VCCLCompilerTool.EnablePREfast Property

Gets or sets whether Native Code Analysis is enabled.

Namespace:  Microsoft.VisualStudio.VCProjectEngine
Assembly:  Microsoft.VisualStudio.VCProjectEngine (in Microsoft.VisualStudio.VCProjectEngine.dll)

function get EnablePREfast () : boolean 
function set EnablePREfast (value : boolean)

Property Value

Type: System.Boolean
true to enable code analysis (/analyze).

Additional options can be set using the AdditionalOptions property.

NoteNote:

/analyze is only available in Enterprise (Team Developer) versions for x86 compilers.

The following example demonstrates how to use the EnablePREfast and AdditionalOptions properties to set the /analyze:WX- switch. (Both properties are required to do this.) Specifying /analyze:WX- means that code analysis warnings will not be treated as errors when compiling with /WX. For more information, see /analyze (Enterprise Code Analysis).

To run this example, enter and run this example as outlined in How to: Compile and Run the Automation Object Model Code Examples. Then, in the new instance of Visual Studio, load a Visual C++ project and use the Add-in Manager to activate the add-in.

No code example is currently available or this language may not be supported.
