VCPropertySheet.WholeProgramOptimization Property

Gets or sets a value indicating whether to enable cross-module optimizations by delaying code generation to link time.

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

bool WholeProgramOptimization { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: System.Boolean
true if cross-module optimizations are enabled; otherwise, false.

WholeProgramOptimization exposes the functionality of the compiler's /GL (Whole Program Optimization) option.

It is better to set the VCConfiguration object's WholeProgramOptimization property rather than to set the compiler property of the same name and the linker's LinkTimeCodeGeneration property.

The compiler's version of this property and the linker's LinkTimeCodeGeneration property are not available via the property pages.
