Property Value

Type: System.String

One or more directories to add to the include path.

AdditionalIncludeDirectories exposes the functionality of the compiler's /I (Additional Include Directories) option, the MIDL compiler's MIDL Property Pages: General option, and the Resource Compiler's Resources Property Pages option.

If specifying more than one directory, use semicolons to delimit the list.

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

[Visual Basic]

' 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 VCMidlTool
        Dim oldDeps As String
        prj = DTE.Solution.Projects.Item(1).Object
        cfgs = prj.Configurations
        cfg = cfgs.Item(1)
        tool = cfg.Tools("VCMidlTool")
        oldDeps = tool.AdditionalIncludeDirectories
        tool.AdditionalIncludeDirectories = oldDeps + "c:\dir1;d:\dir2"
    End Sub
End Module
