importidl

Inserts the specified .idl file into the generated .idl file.

[ importidl( 
   idl_file 
) ];

Parameters

  • idl_file
    Identifies the name of the .idl file that you want to merge with the .idl file that will be generated for your application.

Remarks

The importidl C++ attribute places the section outside of the library block (in idl_file) into your program's generated .idl file and the library section (in idl_file) into the library section of your program's generated .idl file.

You may want to use importidl, for example, if you want to use a hand-coded .idl file with your generated .idl file.

Example

// cpp_attr_ref_importidl.cpp
// compile with: /LD
[module(name="MyLib")];
[importidl("import.idl")];
