Gets or sets the path to use when searching for files added with the #using directive while building a Visual C++ project.
Assembly: Microsoft.VisualStudio.VCProjectEngine (in Microsoft.VisualStudio.VCProjectEngine.dll)
By default in Visual C++ 2010, this property does not inherit from parent or project defaults. To inherit defaults when you set an reference files path, append the project $(ReferencePath) macro to the path. For an example of inheriting project defaults for a property similar to this one, see the remarks and example for ExcludeDirectories.
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 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 p As VCPlatform Dim x As String prj = DTE.Solution.Projects.Item(1).Object p = prj.Platforms(1) x = p.ReferenceDirectories p.ReferenceDirectories = x + ";something" MsgBox(p.ReferenceDirectories) End Sub End Module
