Contains a set of user-defined Property elements. Every Property element used in an MSBuild project must be a child of a PropertyGroup element.


<PropertyGroup Condition="'String A' == 'String B'">
    <Property1>...</Property1>
    <Property2>...</Property2>
</PropertyGroup>

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

<PropertyGroup Condition="'$(CompileConfig)' == 'DEBUG'" >
    <Optimization>false</Optimization>
    <Obfuscate>false</Obfuscate>
    <OutputPath>$(OutputPath)\debug</OutputPath>
</PropertyGroup>
