Get a global property of the CMake instance.

get_cmake_property(VAR property)

Get a global property from the CMake instance. The value of the property is stored in the variable VAR. If the property is not found, VAR will be set to “NOTFOUND”. See the cmake-properties(7) manual for available properties.

See also the get_property() command GLOBAL option.

In addition to global properties, this command (for historical reasons) also supports the VARIABLES and MACROS directory properties. It also supports a special COMPONENTS global property that lists the components given to the install() command.
