IFeatureValidationRule Interface

[This documentation is for preview only, and is subject to change in later releases. Blank topics are included as placeholders.]

Represents a rule to apply when validating a Feature in a SharePoint project.

Namespace:  Microsoft.VisualStudio.SharePoint.Validation
Assembly:  Microsoft.VisualStudio.SharePoint (in Microsoft.VisualStudio.SharePoint.dll)

public interface IFeatureValidationRule

The IFeatureValidationRule type exposes the following members.

Public methodValidateFeatureDetermines whether a feature currently violates the rule.
Public methodValidateProjectItemDetermines whether a feature would violate the rule if the specified project item is added.

Implement the IPackageValidationRule interface to define a custom validation rule to help verify that a package in a SharePoint project is valid. For more information, see How to: Create Custom Feature and Package Validation Rules for SharePoint Solutions.

Classes that implement this interface must include the System.ComponentModel.Composition.ExportAttribute to be discovered by the project system.
