Recipe 2.10. Testing an Application's Command Line

Problem

You have written an application that supports various custom command-line arguments, and you'd like to test the argument-parsing code from within the development environment.

Solution

Use the "Command line arguments" field in the Project Properties window to enter or modify the temporary testing command-line arguments.

Discussion

You can test this code by setting a temporary command-line argument string for use in your program:

  1. Access the Debug tab of the Project Properties window.

  2. Type your temporary command line in the "Command line arguments" field.

This temporary argument string is used only when running programs within the Visual Studio development environment.
