Represents an evaluated item definition for a particular item-type.
Assembly: Microsoft.Build (in Microsoft.Build.dll)
Thetype exposes the following members.
|Equals(Object)||Determines whether the specified Object is equal to the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)|
|Finalize||Allows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before it is reclaimed by garbage collection. (Inherited from Object.)|
|GetHashCode||Serves as a hash function for a particular type. (Inherited from Object.)|
|GetMetadata||Get any metadata in the item definition with the given name.|
|GetMetadataValue||Get the value of any metadata in the item that has the specified name.|
|GetType||Gets the Type of the current instance. (Inherited from Object.)|
|MemberwiseClone||Creates a shallow copy of the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)|
|SetMetadataValue||Sets the value of the given metadata in the item definition.|
|ToString||Returns a string that represents the current object. (Inherited from Object.)|
Item definitions are not the same as items. Like items, item definitions can have metadata. Like properties, new metadata can override old metadata with the same name.
During evaluation, all the item definitions for an item type are collected together (assuming their conditions are true) to create one ProjectItemDefinition for each type. For this reason, a project item definition can refer to more than one project item definition element. The metadata within a project item definition, however, refers to a single project metadata element, which can be added, removed, and modified.
