}

Property Value

Type: System::String
A string representing the name of the module definition file.

ModuleDefinitionFile exposes the functionality of the linker's /DEF (Specify Module-Definition File) option and the librarian's Building an Import Library and Export File option.

See How to: Compile Example Code for Project Model Extensibility for information about how to compile and run this example.

The following example modifies the linker's ModuleDefinitionFile property in the integrated development environment (IDE):

' 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 VCLinkerTool
        prj = DTE.Solution.Projects.Item(1).Object
        cfgs = prj.Configurations
        cfg = cfgs.Item(1)
        tool = cfg.Tools("VCLinkerTool")
        tool.ModuleDefinitionFile = "$(SolutionDir)\some.def"
    End Sub
End Module
