Getting and setting macro defs
« on: November 21, 2008, 01:03:50 pm »
Hello,
Is it possible, from a dll, to get and set macro defs?
I looked for a vsXXXX function, but didn't find one.
Thanks for any hints....

Here is sample code to get a string variable.
That should give you pointers to the API functions to look up for other variations on the pattern.

Code: [Select]
int index = vsFindIndex( "varname", VSTYPE_VAR );
if ( index >= 0 )
{
    VSHVAR hvar = vsGetVar( index );
    DoSomethingWithTheString( vsHvarGetZ( hvar );
}
else
{
    // Failed to find the variable "varname", take appropriate action...
}
