The type that is generated by the build provider for the virtual path. The base class returns null.

To implement a build provider that generates source code for Web content such as .aspx files, derive a class from the BuildProvider class and override the GetGeneratedType method to return the type generated by the build provider.

The ASP.NET build system compiles files for each build provider, and generates a CompilerResults object, which is passed to the GetGeneratedType method. Typically, a build provider's GetGeneratedType implementation uses the GetType method on the CompiledAssembly property of the input results object to return the provided type.
