VCCLCompilerTool.StructMemberAlignment Property

Specifies 1-, 2-, 4-, 8-, or 16-byte boundaries for struct member alignment. StructMemberAlignment exposes the functionality of the C++ compiler's /Zp (Struct Member Alignment) option and the MIDL compiler's MIDL Property Pages: Advanced option.

Namespace:  Microsoft.VisualStudio.VCProjectEngine
Assembly:  Microsoft.VisualStudio.VCProjectEngine (in Microsoft.VisualStudio.VCProjectEngine.dll)


Property StructMemberAlignment As structMemberAlignOption
Dim instance As VCCLCompilerTool 
Dim value As structMemberAlignOption 

value = instance.StructMemberAlignment

instance.StructMemberAlignment = value
structMemberAlignOption StructMemberAlignment { get; set; }
property structMemberAlignOption StructMemberAlignment {
    structMemberAlignOption get ();
    void set (structMemberAlignOption value);
function get StructMemberAlignment () : structMemberAlignOption 
function set StructMemberAlignment (value : structMemberAlignOption)

Property Value

Type: Microsoft.VisualStudio.VCProjectEngine.structMemberAlignOption
A structMemberAlignOption value.


The MIDL tool does not allow 16-byte boundaries.

The following example modifies the compiler's StructMemberAlignment 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 VCCLCompilerTool
        prj = DTE.Solution.Projects.Item(1).Object
        cfgs = prj.Configurations
        cfg = cfgs.Item(1)
        tool = cfg.Tools("VCCLCompilerTool")
        tool.StructMemberAlignment = structMemberAlignOption.alignSixteenBytes
