VCLinkerTool.ShowProgress Property

Gets or sets a value that enables a detailed display about linker progress.

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

Property ShowProgress As linkProgressOption
Dim instance As VCLinkerTool 
Dim value As linkProgressOption 

value = instance.ShowProgress

instance.ShowProgress = value

ShowProgress exposes the functionality of the linker's /VERBOSE (Print Progress Messages) option and the Resource Compiler's Resources Property Pages option.

Use the linkProgressOption enumeration to modify the value of the linker property.

The ShowProgress property on the VCResourceCompilerTool object takes and returns a Boolean value.

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 ShowProgress 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.ShowProgress = linkProgressOption.linkProgressLibs
    End Sub
End Module
