Task Base Class

Many tasks ultimately inherit from the Task class. This class adds several parameters to the tasks that derive from them. These parameters are listed in this document.

The following table describes the parameters of this base class.

BuildEngine

Optional IBuildEngine parameter.

Specifies the build engine interface available to tasks. The build engine automatically sets this parameter to allow tasks to call back into it.

BuildEngine2

Optional IBuildEngine2 parameter.

Specifies the build engine interface available to tasks. The build engine automatically sets this parameter to allow tasks to call back into it.

This is a convenience property so that task authors inheriting from this class do not have to cast the value from IBuildEngine to IBuildEngine2.

BuildEngine3

Optional IBuildEngine3 parameter.

Specifies the build engine interface provided by the host.

HostObject
