What I need:

I want to use cmake tool to add x86-windows-static in Triplet option and Debug in Vcpkg Configuration.

Look the screenshots below,

vs screenshot 1

vs screenshot 2

What I have tried:

I read some docs to changed these vars, but failed.

My part code in CMakeLists,


...

if(WIN32 OR CMAKE_SYSTEM_NAME STREQUAL "Windows")

set(CMAKE_GENERATOR_PLATFORM Win32)

set(CMAKE_GENERATOR_TOOLSET "host=x86" CACHE STRING "Platform Toolset" FORCE)

#set vcpkg

set(VCPKG_ROOT_DIR "C:/Users/xxx/vcpkg" CACHE PATH "set vcpkg path")

set(CMAKE_TOOLCHAIN_FILE "${VCPKG_ROOT_DIR}/scripts/buildsystems/vcpkg.cmake")

message(VCPKG_ROOT = "${CMAKE_TOOLCHAIN_FILE}")

set(VCPKG_TARGET_ARCHITECTURE x86)

set(VCPKG_CRT_LINKAGE static)

set(VCPKG_LIBRARY_LINKAGE static)

set(VCPKG_CMAKE_SYSTEM_NAME Empty)

set(VCPKG_TARGET_TRIPLET "x86-windows-static")

endif()

project(my_project)

...

Output:


$ cmake -B build

VCPKG_ROOT=C:/Users/xxx/vcpkg/scripts/buildsystems/vcpkg.cmake

-- Selecting Windows SDK version 10.0.22621.0 to target Windows 10.0.19045.

-- Configuring done

-- Generating done

-- Build files have been written to: D:/my_project/build

Reopen .sln project, no happended in the Triplet option and Vcpkg Configuration,they are still empty.

BTW, I can use VS_GLOBAL_VcpkgEnabled to change Use Vcpkg

`set_target_properties(my_project PROPERTIES VS_GLOBAL_VcpkgEnabled true)

`

vs screenshot 3

But I cannot change the other vcpkg options.

My question:

Can I modify the relevant variable values in CMakeLists to change the vcpkg options in VS project?

If not, is there any other way?

Thanks in advance!
