Provides the base class for MSBuild tasks that are used by the Office development tools in Visual Studio to build projects.
Assembly: Microsoft.VisualStudio.Tools.Office.BuildTasks (in Microsoft.VisualStudio.Tools.Office.BuildTasks.dll)
Thetype exposes the following members.
|BuildEngine||Gets or sets the instance of the IBuildEngine object used by the task. (Inherited from Task.)|
|BuildEngine2||Gets the instance of the IBuildEngine2 object used by the task. (Inherited from Task.)|
|BuildEngine3||Gets the instance of the IBuildEngine3 object used by the task. (Inherited from Task.)|
|BuildEngine4||Gets the instance of the IBuildEngine4 object used by the task. (Inherited from Task.)|
|HelpKeywordPrefix||Gets or sets the prefix used to compose Help keywords from resource names. (Inherited from Task.)|
|HostObject||Gets or sets the host object associated with the task. (Inherited from Task.)|
|Log||Gets an instance of a TaskLoggingHelper class containing task logging methods. (Inherited from Task.)|
|TaskResources||Gets or sets the culture-specific resources associated with the task. (Inherited from Task.)|
|Equals||Determines whether the specified object is equal to the current object. (Inherited from Object.)|
|Execute||When overridden in a derived class, executes the task. (Inherited from Task.)|
|Finalize||Allows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before it is reclaimed by garbage collection. (Inherited from Object.)|
|GetHashCode||Serves as the default hash function. (Inherited from Object.)|
|GetType||Gets the Type of the current instance. (Inherited from Object.)|
|MemberwiseClone||Creates a shallow copy of the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)|
|ToString||Returns a string that represents the current object. (Inherited from Object.)|
These build tasks are for the 2007 Microsoft Office system.
The Microsoft Build Engine uses Microsoft.VisualStudio.Tools.Office.BuildTasks to build and deploy Office solutions. However, you can create your own build system by using these classes and the MSBuild XML-based project files. For more information, see MSBuild Reference.
