Properties dialog box

Project settings can be customized using the Properties dialog box. You can access this dialog box by selecting a project and then selecting Properties... from the Project menu. Changes to the customized settings are saved in the project folder in your workspace. You can also customize the C/C++ properties for a single file for example, if you want to apply a specific compiler option to a file during the build.


If you specify different options for a single file, it overrides the options specified in the project configuration panels that apply to all related source files.

The contents of the properties hierarchy tree for a project include the following:
