Microsoft.Build.Utilities

Microsoft.Build.Utilities Namespace

 

The Microsoft.Build.Utilities namespace provides helper classes that you can use to create your own MSBuild loggers and tasks. For information, see MSBuild.

ClassDescription
System_CAPS_pubclassAppDomainIsolatedTask

Provides the same functionality as Task, but also derives from MarshalByRefObject so that it can be instantiated in its own app domain.

System_CAPS_pubclassAssemblyFoldersExInfo

Contains information about entries in the AssemblyFoldersEx registry keys.

System_CAPS_pubclassCanonicalTrackedInputFiles

This class is the filetracking log interpreter for .read. tracking logs in canonical form or those that have been rooted (^) to make them canonical

System_CAPS_pubclassCanonicalTrackedOutputFiles

This class is the file tracking log interpreter for .write. tracking logs in canonical form Canoncial .write. logs need to be rooted, since the outputs need to be associated with an input.

System_CAPS_pubclassCommandLineBuilder

Comprises utility methods for constructing a command line.

System_CAPS_pubclassFileTracker

This class contains utility functions to encapsulate launching and logging for the Tracker

System_CAPS_pubclassFlatTrackingData

This class is used to track file dependencies during a build.

System_CAPS_pubclassLogger

When overridden in a derived form, provides functionality for loggers that handle events raised by the MSBuild engine.

System_CAPS_pubclassMuxLogger

Represents a multiplexing logger. The purpose of this logger is to register and unregister multiple loggers during the build. Supports the Visual Studio IDE scenario in which loggers are registered and unregistered for each project system’s build request. One physical build can have multiple logical builds, each with its own set of loggers.

The MuxLoggerregisters itself with the build manager as a regular central /l style logger. It receives messages from the build manager and routes them to the correct logger, based on the logical build that the message came from.

System_CAPS_pubclassProcessorArchitecture

Determines the correct tool in the Toolset that MSBuild should use, based on the current system's processor architecture.

System_CAPS_pubclassTargetPlatformSDK

Represents a target platform SDK.

System_CAPS_pubclassTask

When overridden in a derived form, provides functionality for tasks.

System_CAPS_pubclassTaskItem

Defines a single item of the project as it is passed into a task.

System_CAPS_pubclassTaskLoggingHelper

Provides helper logging methods used by tasks.

System_CAPS_pubclassToolLocationHelper

Provides utility methods for locating .NET Framework and .NET Framework SDK files and directories.

System_CAPS_pubclassToolTask

When overridden in a derived form, provides functionality for a task that wraps a command line tool.

System_CAPS_pubclassTrackedDependencies

This class contains utility functions to assist with tracking dependencies

DelegateDescription
System_CAPS_pubdelegateDependencyFilter

Dependency filter delegate. Used during TLog saves in order for tasks to selectively remove dependencies from the written graph.

EnumerationDescription
System_CAPS_pubenumDotNetFrameworkArchitecture

Used to specify the targeted bitness of the .NET Framework for some methods of ToolLocationHelper

System_CAPS_pubenumExecutableType

Enumeration to express the type of executable being wrapped by Tracker.exe

System_CAPS_pubenumHostObjectInitializationStatus

Defines the next action for ToolTask after an attempt to initialize the host object.

System_CAPS_pubenumTargetDotNetFrameworkVersion

Specifies the version of the .NET Framework to use with the methods in ToolLocationHelper.

System_CAPS_pubenumUpToDateCheckType

The possible types of up to date check that we can support

System_CAPS_pubenumVisualStudioVersion

Used to specify the version of Visual Studio from which to select associated tools for some methods of ToolLocationHelper
