<TaskBody Evaluate="true/false" />

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

Attributes

Attribute

Description

Evaluate

Optional Boolean attribute.

If true, MSBuild evaluates any inner elements, and expands items and properties before it passes the information to the TaskFactory when the task is instantiated.

Child Elements

Element

Description

Data

The text between the TaskBody tags is sent verbatim to the TaskFactory.

Parent Elements

Element

Description

UsingTask

Provides a way to register tasks in MSBuild. There may be zero or more UsingTask elements in a project.

The following example shows how to use the TaskBody element with an Evaluate attribute.

<UsingTask TaskName="MyTask" AssemblyName="My.Assembly" TaskFactory="MyTaskFactory">
       <ParameterGroup>
              <Parameter1 ParameterType="System.String" Required="False" Output="False"/>
              <Parameter2 ParameterType="System.Int" Required="True" Output="False"/>
              ...
</ParameterGroup>
       <TaskBody Evaluate="true">
      ... Task factory-specific data ...
       </TaskBody>
</UsingTask>
