Export Type Library Action

Previous pageReturn to chapter overviewNext page

The Export Type Library action creates a step to call TlbExp to generate a COM type library that describes types defined in a .NET assembly.


Assembly filename: The assembly for which to export a type library (required).


Type library filename: Specifies the name of the type library file to generate (optional). If blank, the action generates a type library with the same name as the assembly (the actual assembly name, which might not necessarily be the same as the file containing the assembly) and a .tlb extension.


Capitalization of names in type library: Specifies the capitalization of names in a type library (optional). Each line specifies the capitalization of one name in the type library.


Override executable filename: Overrides the default executable (TlbExp.exe).  If not specified, the 32-bit edition of Visual Build calls the 32-bit version of TlbExp.exe, and the 64-bit edition of Visual Build calls the 64-bit version of TlbExp.exe if available.


Additional command-line options: Use this field to enter any additional command-line options to be added to the call that is constructed (optional).


Note: By default, this action is not displayed (existing steps will still be displayed in the Step panes and will build normally).  To show all hidden actions, right-click in the Actions pane and choose Show Hidden.
