ResolveNonMSBuildProjectOutput Class

This API supports the .NET Framework infrastructure and is not intended to be used directly from your code.

Determines the output files for non-MSBuild project references.

Namespace:  Microsoft.Build.Tasks
Assembly:  Microsoft.Build.Tasks.v4.0 (in Microsoft.Build.Tasks.v4.0.dll)

public class ResolveNonMSBuildProjectOutput : ResolveProjectBase

The ResolveNonMSBuildProjectOutput type exposes the following members.

Public methodResolveNonMSBuildProjectOutputInfrastructure. Initializes a new instance of the ResolveNonMSBuildProjectOutput class.

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 propertyBuildEngine4Gets the instance of the IBuildEngine4 object used by the task. (Inherited from Task.)
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 propertyLogInfrastructure. Gets an instance of a TaskLoggingHelperExtension containing task logging methods. (Inherited from TaskExtension.)
Public propertyPreresolvedProjectOutputsInfrastructure. Gets or sets an XML string containing resolved project outputs.
Public propertyProjectReferencesInfrastructure. Gets or sets the project references. (Inherited from ResolveProjectBase.)
Public propertyResolvedOutputPathsInfrastructure. Gets or sets resolved reference paths that preserve the original project reference attributes.
Protected propertyTaskResourcesGets or sets the culture-specific resources associated with the task. (Inherited from Task.)
Public propertyUnresolvedProjectReferencesInfrastructure. Gets or sets project reference items that are in the MSBuild format.

Protected methodAddSyntheticProjectReferencesHelper method for retrieving the extra “project references” passed in the solution blob. These come from dependencies expressed in the solution file itself. (Inherited from ResolveProjectBase.)
Public methodEquals(Object)Determines whether the specified object is equal to the current object. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodExecuteInfrastructure. Executes the ResolveNonMSBuildProjectOutput 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 the default hash function. (Inherited from Object.)
Protected methodGetProjectElementInfrastructure. Retrieves the XML element representing the given project. (Inherited from ResolveProjectBase.)
Protected methodGetProjectItemInfrastructure. Retrieves the XML contents of the project element of the specified project. (Inherited from ResolveProjectBase.)
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 ResolveNonMSBuildProjectOutput task searches for a special property set by the Visual Studio IDE for the list of project GUIDs and their associated outputs. The IDE only pre-resolves non-MSBuild projects and in this way separates MSBuild project references from non-MSBuild references. The IDE returns the list of MSBuild projects as UnresolvedProjectReferences. This enables the task to use more powerful MSBuild mechanisms to manipulate just the MSBuild project references, such as. calling into specific targets of references to get the manifest file name, which would not be possible with a mixed list of MSBuild and non-MSBuild project references.

.NET Framework

Supported in: 4.6, 4.5, 4, 3.5, 3.0, 2.0

Any public static (Shared in Visual Basic) members of this type are thread safe. Any instance members are not guaranteed to be thread safe.
