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 */
boolean get_WholeProgramOptimization ()

/** @property */
void set_WholeProgramOptimization (/** @attribute InAttribute() */ boolean Optimize)

function get WholeProgramOptimization () : boolean

function set WholeProgramOptimization (Optimize : boolean)

Property Value

true if cross-module optimizations are enabled; otherwise, false.

WholeProgramOptimization exposes the functionality of the compiler's /GL 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.
