VSProject2.WorkOffline Property

Definition

Indicates whether a Web project is working online or offline. When it is working offline, development continues on an offline store of project files, so that the project files on the server are not changed.

public:
 property bool WorkOffline { bool get(); void set(bool value); };
public:
 property bool WorkOffline { bool get(); void set(bool value); };
[System.Runtime.InteropServices.DispId(10)]
[get: System.Runtime.InteropServices.DispId(10)]
[set: System.Runtime.InteropServices.DispId(10)]
public bool WorkOffline { get; set; }
member this.WorkOffline : bool with get, set
Public Property WorkOffline As Boolean

Property Value

A boolean value. For Web applications, this property returns true if working offline and false if working online. For local projects, this property returns false.

Examples

This example assumes that the first project in the solution is a Visual Basic or Visual C# project. To run this example as an add-in, see How to: Compile and Run the Automation Object Model Code Examples.

    {   
        // Setting the property fails for local projects.  
        MessageBox.Show( e.Message);   
    }   
}  

Remarks

When the project is offline, no attempt is made to write to or access the project's files on the server.

To change the URL of the offline project files, use the OfflineURL property of the Project.Properties collection.

This property may be changed for Web projects only. While this is a read-write property, an error is generated if you attempt to set this property for a local project.
