    built-in variables for VC?

    Hello everyone,

    I always notice that some guys are using some VC built-in variables to specify some properties, like OutDir, ProjectName, SolutionName, etc. Then we can use the built-in variables to specify, for example, the generated library name, like $(OutDir)/$(ProjectName).lib.

    I think this way is very convenient compared with hardcoded names. I am wondering where can I find a list of all such built-in variable names and meanings?

    thanks in advance,

    My guess is somewhere in the manual pages.
    Try pressing F1 when looking at one of the dialogs showing use of those variables.

    Thread moved.
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.
