[set: System.Runtime.InteropServices.DispId(40)]
public string MidlCommandFile { get; set; }
Property Value

A string representing the name of the response file.


The following example modifies the MidlCommandFile 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 tool As VCLinkerTool  
    prj = DTE.Solution.Projects.Item(1).Object  
    cfgs = prj.Configurations  
    cfg = cfgs.Item(1)  
    tool = cfg.Tools("VCLinkerTool")  
    tool.MidlCommandFile = "c:\a.rsp"  
  End Sub  
End Module  


MidlCommandFile exposes the functionality of the /MIDL (Specify MIDL Command Line Options) linker option.

MidlCommandFile can also be used to specify the commands to place into a response file.
