Generates a string to be persisted in the compiled assembly.

Namespace: System.Web.Compilation
Assembly: System.Web (in system.web.dll)

public virtual string GetCustomString (
	CompilerResults results
public String GetCustomString (
	CompilerResults results
public function GetCustomString (
	results : CompilerResults
) : String
Not applicable.



The compilation results for the build provider's virtual path.

Return Value

A string to be persisted in the build environment; otherwise, a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic) if the BuildProvider does not implement GetCustomString.

The GetCompiledCustomString method of a BuildManager object creates an instance of a build provider for an input virtual path, and calls the GetCustomString method on the BuildProvider object.

The base BuildProvider class returns a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic) for the GetCustomString method, indicating that GetCustomString is not implemented.

Certain build provider implementations can implement GetCustomString in place of the GetGeneratedType method. A BuildProvider object typically uses GetGeneratedType to return a Type object for a virtual path. However, the GetCustomString method can be used to indicate that a BuildProvider object can generate multiple types from a virtual path.
