Visual Studio Build Macros

2 posts in this topic

I'm having problems finding information reguarding build macros for VS2005. I want to add some custom macros to define certain include files in my project, like $(BoostDir) etc. I've tried adding them to the environment variables as suggested in the GDNet chat but that didn't work. I'm having a hard time searching because for some reason they decided to name them macros which brings up a lot of general visual studio macro results (recording keystrokes) when searching.

Aparently there is supposed to be a dialog box for it. Nothing indicates how to get to it however.

Visual C++ enables you to create custom macros for building projects in the integrated development environment. Macros that you create are called user-defined macros. You can use the Add User Macro Dialog Box to easily create new custom macros.

FOUND IT!

If you go to view->property manager and then right click to add a new property page. Then you can double click on it to open up the property page and one of the tabs is User Macros.
