ActivationDependencies Element (Feature)

Last modified: March 09, 2015

Applies to: SharePoint Foundation 2010

Specifies a list of features on which the activation of the current feature depends.






Minimum: 0

Maximum: 1

If the Feature on which the current Feature depends is hidden and inactive, it is activated automatically. Such a hidden Feature is deactivated when the last Feature depending on it is deactivated. If the Feature is visible, it is not activated automatically. A hidden Feature cannot have any activation dependencies.

If included within a Feature element, the following code example prevents the current Feature from being activated unless the Feature with the specified ID is activated.

    FeatureId="11111111-1111-1111-1111-111111111111" />

For another example of how this element is used, see Feature.xml Files.
