Text Syntax (Domain-Specific Languages) 

A text block is any non-programmatic text in a text template. A text block is written directly to the output file of the text transformation and can be added by simply typing the text in the text template.

A text block is added to the generated transformation class as Write statements. That is, text is not compiled or executed in the generated transformation class.

To learn how to add text that includes the strings used to delimit other blocks, see How to: Use Escape Sequences in Text Templates.


To debug text templates you must set the debug parameter of the template directive. For more information, see How to: Debug Text Templates.


For more information, see Security of Text Templates.
