VCReference VCReference VCReference VCReference Interface


Represents a reference in the project.

public interface class VCReference : Microsoft::VisualStudio::VCProjectEngine::VCProjectItem
[System.Runtime.InteropServices.TypeLibType(System.Runtime.InteropServices.TypeLibTypeFlags.FDual | System.Runtime.InteropServices.TypeLibTypeFlags.FDispatchable)]

Public Interface VCReference
Implements VCProjectItem


Visual C++ supports the following reference types:

  • .NET assemblies

  • Projects (.NET and non-.NET assemblies)

  • COM objects

    Unlike Visual Basic and Visual C#, Visual C++ distinguishes between project references and assembly references, that is, Visual C++ supports non-.NET assembly project references.
