ITaskFactory2 Interface

Describes and extended ITaskFactory interface that a task factory instance should implement.

MSBuild is now included in Visual Studio instead of the .NET Framework. You can use MSBuild 12.0 side-by-side with versions previously deployed with the .NET Framework.For more information, see What's New in MSBuild 12.0.

Namespace:  Microsoft.Build.Framework
Assembly:  Microsoft.Build.Framework (in Microsoft.Build.Framework.dll)

public interface ITaskFactory2 : ITaskFactory

The ITaskFactory2 type exposes the following members.

  NameDescription
Public propertyFactoryNameGets the name of the factory.MSBuild is now included in Visual Studio instead of the .NET Framework. You can use MSBuild 12.0 side-by-side with versions previously deployed with the .NET Framework.For more information, see What's New in MSBuild 12.0. (Inherited from ITaskFactory.)
Public propertyTaskTypeGets the type of the task this factory will instantiate.MSBuild is now included in Visual Studio instead of the .NET Framework. You can use MSBuild 12.0 side-by-side with versions previously deployed with the .NET Framework.For more information, see What's New in MSBuild 12.0. (Inherited from ITaskFactory.)

  NameDescription
Public methodCleanupTaskCleans up any context or state that may have been built up for a given task.MSBuild is now included in Visual Studio instead of the .NET Framework. You can use MSBuild 12.0 side-by-side with versions previously deployed with the .NET Framework.For more information, see What's New in MSBuild 12.0. (Inherited from ITaskFactory.)
Public methodCreateTask(IBuildEngine)Creates an instance of the task to be used in a batch. The task factory logging host will log messages in the context of the task.MSBuild is now included in Visual Studio instead of the .NET Framework. You can use MSBuild 12.0 side-by-side with versions previously deployed with the .NET Framework.For more information, see What's New in MSBuild 12.0. (Inherited from ITaskFactory.)
Public methodCreateTask(IBuildEngine, IDictionary<String, String>)Create an instance of the task to be used, with an optional set of "special" parameters set on the individual task invocation using the MSBuildRuntime and MSBuildArchitecture default task parameters. MSBuild provides an implementation of this interface, TaskHostFactory, that uses "MSBuildRuntime", with values "CLR2", "CLR4", "CurrentRuntime", and "*" (Any); and "MSBuildArchitecture", with values "x86", "x64", "CurrentArchitecture", and "*" (Any). An implementer of ITaskFactory2 can choose to use these pre-defined MSBuildRuntime and MSBuildArchitecture values, or can specify new values for these parameters.MSBuild is now included in Visual Studio instead of the .NET Framework. You can use MSBuild 12.0 side-by-side with versions previously deployed with the .NET Framework.For more information, see What's New in MSBuild 12.0.
Public methodGetTaskParametersGet the descriptions for all the task's parameters.MSBuild is now included in Visual Studio instead of the .NET Framework. You can use MSBuild 12.0 side-by-side with versions previously deployed with the .NET Framework.For more information, see What's New in MSBuild 12.0. (Inherited from ITaskFactory.)
Public methodInitialize(String, IDictionary<String, TaskPropertyInfo>, String, IBuildEngine)Initializes this factory for instantiating tasks with a particular inline task block.MSBuild is now included in Visual Studio instead of the .NET Framework.
