VCLinkerTool.SetChecksum VCLinkerTool.SetChecksum VCLinkerTool.SetChecksum VCLinkerTool.SetChecksum Property


Gets or sets a value enabling the setting of the checksum in the header of an .exe file.

 property bool SetChecksum { bool get(); void set(bool value); };
[get: System.Runtime.InteropServices.DispId(102)]
[set: System.Runtime.InteropServices.DispId(102)]
public bool SetChecksum { get; set; }
member this.SetChecksum : bool with get, set
Public Property SetChecksum As Boolean
Property Value

true if the setting of the checksum in the header of an .exe is enabled; otherwise, false.


The following example modifies the SetChecksum 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.SetChecksum = True  
  End Sub  
End Module  


SetChecksum exposes the functionality of the /RELEASE (Set the Checksum) linker option.
