Go Up to Project Options Dialog Box


The compiler- and build-related pages on the Project Options dialog box can contain several common items that are described here.

Common items Description

Value from <parent configuration or option set>

Indicates the value in the parent build configuration or referenced option set. If you change this value here, the change will potentially affect the Base configuration (that is, if you click OK on the Project > Options dialog and subsequently build your project).

Inherit

Indicates whether inheritance (from a parent configuration) is on or off for the option. To control inheritance, click the option, and then open the associated generic list dialog box by clicking the Ellipsis that appears. The Inherit values from parent configuration check box controls whether your current build configuration inherits the values listed in the lower box of the generic list dialog box.

<any item in red print>

Indicates that this option has secondary options available.

To view the secondary options, click the + sign in front of the option in red.

<any item in boldface print>

Indicates that the value of this option has been changed from the value in the parent configuration or referenced option set.

FalseCheckbox.png or TrueCheckbox.png Checkbox

A clear checkbox indicates that the value (in this case "False") is the default.
A checkmark in the checkbox indicates that the value (in this case, "True") has been changed from the default.

Down Arrow Pop-Up Button

Appears after you click an option that has a set of available choices (such as True, False).
Click Down Arrow to display and choose the value you want from the available choices.

Ellipsis Pop-Up Button

Appears after you click an option whose value is either of the following:

  • A single name, such as a file name, a directory name, or a folder name.
    For a single name, clicking Ellipsis invokes the standard Open file or Browse for folder dialog box.
  • An ordered list of names that you enter or navigate to, and then arrange in the desired order, such as a list of defines or search paths.
    For an ordered list, clicking Ellipsis invokes the generic ordered list dialog box.
