Microsoft.Build.Execution Namespace

Contains types that the MSBuild object model uses to build projects. For information, see MSBuild.

Classes

BuildManager

This class is the public entry point for executing builds.

BuildParameters

This class represents all of the settings which must be specified to start a build.

BuildRequestData

Encapsulates all of the data needed to submit a build request.

BuildResult

Represents the current result set for all of the targets that have produced results for a particular configuration.

BuildSubmission

Represents a build request that has been submitted to the build manager for processing. The methods of this class may be used to execute synchronous or asynchronous build requests and to provide access to the results upon completion.

HostServices

Implementation of a host service that mediates access from the build to the host.

OutOfProcNode

This class represents an implementation of an out-of-proc build node. This class is deprecated and has no alternative.

ProjectInstance

Represents a project instance.

ProjectItemDefinitionInstance

Represents an evaluated item definition for a particular item type, divested of all references to project source code.

ProjectItemGroupTaskInstance

Wraps an unevaluated itemgroup under a target. Immutable.

ProjectItemGroupTaskItemInstance

Wraps an unevaluated item under an itemgroup in a target. Immutable.

ProjectItemGroupTaskMetadataInstance

Wraps an unevaluated metadata under an item in an item group in a target. Immutable.

ProjectItemInstance

Wraps an evaluated item for build purposes.

ProjectMetadataInstance

Wraps an evaluated metadata for build purposes.

ProjectOnErrorInstance

Wraps an OnError Element (MSBuild).

ProjectPropertyGroupTaskInstance

Wraps an unevaluated propertygroup under a target. Immutable.

ProjectPropertyGroupTaskPropertyInstance

Wraps an unevaluated property of a property group in a target. Immutable.

ProjectPropertyInstance

Wraps an evaluated property for build purposes. Instances of these properties are added and removed via methods on the ProjectInstance object.

ProjectTargetInstance

Wraps a Target Element (MSBuild).

ProjectTargetInstanceChild

Abstracts the ProjectTaskInstance, ProjectPropertyGroupTaskInstance and ProjectItemGroupTaskInstance classes. This allows these types to be used in a single collection of target children

ProjectTaskInstance

Wraps a Task Element (MSBuild).

ProjectTaskInstanceChild

Abstracts the base class for the TaskOutputItem and TaskOutputProperty classes. This allows them to be used in a single collection.

ProjectTaskOutputItemInstance

Wraps an output item element of a Task Element (MSBuild).

ProjectTaskOutputPropertyInstance

Represents an output property element of a Task Element (MSBuild).

TargetResult

Represents both the result code for building a single target and the overall build result.

Interfaces

ITargetResult

An interface representing the results for a specific target.

Enums

BuildRequestDataFlags

Flags providing additional control over the build request.

BuildResultCode

Enumerated data indicating the build result of a target or a build request.

NodeAffinity

An enumerated data type that determines where projects are built.

NodeEngineShutdownReason

Reasons for a node to shutdown.

ProjectInstanceSettings

Contains settings for controlling project instance creation.

TargetResultCode

The result code for a given target.

Delegates

BuildSubmissionCompleteCallback

A callback function that receives notification when a build completes.
