The following example modifies the /INCLUDE librarian option in the integrated development environment (IDE):

' add reference to Microsoft.VisualStudio.VCProjectEngine  
Imports EnvDTE  
Imports Microsoft.VisualStudio.VCProjectEngine  

Public Module Module1  
    Sub Test()  
        Dim mystring As String  
        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("VCLibrarianTool")  
        tool.ForceSymbolReferences = "symbol1,symbol2"  
    End Sub  
End Module  


ForceSymbolReferences exposes the functionality of the linker's /INCLUDE (Force Symbol References) option or the librarian's Building an Import Library and Export File option.

Separate symbol names with a comma or semicolon.
