PartialClassGenerationTask Class

This task accesses XAML files that define types (with x:Class) and generates the corresponding source code that can be compiled into an assembly.


Namespace:  Microsoft.Build.Tasks.Xaml
Assembly:  XamlBuildTask (in XamlBuildTask.dll)

public class PartialClassGenerationTask : Task

The PartialClassGenerationTask type exposes the following members.

Public methodPartialClassGenerationTaskInitializes a new instance of the PartialClassGenerationTask class.

Public propertyApplicationMarkupA list of XAML files to process, populated by MS Build.
Public propertyAssemblyNameGets or sets the name of the assembly being compiled.
Public propertyBuildEngineGets or sets the instance of the IBuildEngine object used by the task. (Inherited from Task.)
Public propertyBuildEngine2Gets the instance of the IBuildEngine2 object used by the task. (Inherited from Task.)
Public propertyBuildEngine3Gets the instance of the IBuildEngine3 object used by the task. (Inherited from Task.)
Public propertyBuildTaskPathGets or sets the path of the assembly that contains this build task.
Public propertyGeneratedCodeFilesGets or sets a list of generated code files, one for each input file.
Public propertyGeneratedResourcesGets or sets a list of XAML files that contain the markup for instantiating the newly generated types, one for each input file.
Public propertyGeneratedSourceExtensionGets or sets the file extension to add to the generated source files.
Protected propertyHelpKeywordPrefixGets or sets the prefix used to compose Help keywords from resource names. (Inherited from Task.)
Public propertyHostObjectGets or sets the host object associated with the task. (Inherited from Task.)
Public propertyIsInProcessXamlMarkupCompile
Public propertyKnownReferencePathsGets or sets the known reference paths.
Public propertyLanguageGets or sets the language to generate source code in.
Public propertyLogGets an instance of a TaskLoggingHelper class containing task logging methods. (Inherited from Task.)
Public propertyOutputPathGets or sets the directory to place the generated files.
Public propertyReferencesGets or sets a list of assemblies to reference.
Public propertyRequiresCompilationPass2Gets or sets a value that indicates whether this project requires executing the CompilationPass2Task task.
Public propertyRootNamespaceGets or sets the root namespace for the project.
Public propertySourceCodeFilesGets or sets a list of source code files in the project.
Protected propertyTaskResourcesGets or sets the culture-specific resources associated with the task. (Inherited from Task.)

Public methodEquals(Object)Determines whether the specified Object is equal to the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodExecuteCalled by MS Build to execute the code generation task. (Overrides Task.Execute().)
Protected methodFinalizeAllows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before it is reclaimed by garbage collection. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetHashCodeServes as a hash function for a particular type. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetTypeGets the Type of the current instance. (Inherited from Object.)
Protected methodMemberwiseCloneCreates a shallow copy of the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodToStringReturns a string that represents the current object. (Inherited from Object.)

The XAML files processed by this task define new types as well as instantiate those types. The PartialClassGenerationTask class reads in the new type definitions and generates source code files. In addition, it generates a XAML file that contains the markup that instantiates the newly generated types.

This task should not be used to consume untrusted XAML inputs.
