The following sections describe attributes, child elements, and parent elements.

Attributes

Attribute

Description

directoryName

Required String attribute.

Defines the name of a subdirectory that contains the files to compile at run time. Subdirectory names are relative to the App_Code directory. This is the collection key.

Child Elements

None.

Parent Elements

Element

Description

configuration

Specifies the root element in every configuration file that is used by the common language runtime and the .NET Framework applications.

system.web

Specifies the root element for the ASP.NET configuration section.

compilation

Configures all compilation settings that ASP.NET uses to compile applications.

codeSubDirectories

Defines an ordered collection of subdirectories containing files to compile at run time.

The add element adds a subdirectory to the collection of subdirectories that contain files to compile at run time. The collection is contained in the codeSubDirectories element.

The codeSubDirectories element defines an ordered collection of subdirectories that contains files to compile at run time.

Subdirectory names are relative to the App_Code directory.

The build order is inferred from the top-down order of the codeSubDirectories collection. The App_Code directory is built last. However, there are no build order dependencies, which means that the build order is not significant.

Default Configuration

There is no default codeSubDirectories element configured for ASP.NET.

The following code example demonstrates how to define an assembly directory location.

<configuration>
   <system.web>
      <compilation>
        <codeSubDirectories>
          <add directoryName="/mysite/code/mySubDir"/>
        </codeSubDirectories>
       </compilation>
   </system.web>
</configuration>
