Full path to the import library for an IMPORTED target.

This property may be set:

  • On DLL platforms, to the location of the .lib part of the DLL.

  • On AIX, to an import file (e.g. .imp) created for executables that export symbols (see the ENABLE_EXPORTS target property).

  • On macOS, to an import file (e.g. .tbd) created for shared libraries (see the ENABLE_EXPORTS target property). For frameworks this is the location of the .tbd file symlink just inside the framework folder.

The IMPORTED_IMPLIB target property may be overridden for a given configuration <CONFIG> by the configuration-specific IMPORTED_IMPLIB_<CONFIG> target property. Furthermore, the MAP_IMPORTED_CONFIG_<CONFIG> target property may be used to map between a project's configurations and those of an imported target. If none of these is set then the name of any other configuration listed in the IMPORTED_CONFIGURATIONS target property may be selected and its IMPORTED_IMPLIB_<CONFIG> value used.

This property is ignored for non-imported targets.
