 bool BuildProjectFile(System::String ^ projectFileName, cli::array <System::String ^> ^ targetNames, System::Collections::IDictionary ^ globalProperties, System::Collections::IDictionary ^ targetOutputs, System::String ^ toolsVersion);
public bool BuildProjectFile (string projectFileName, string[] targetNames, System.Collections.IDictionary globalProperties, System.Collections.IDictionary targetOutputs, string toolsVersion);
abstract member BuildProjectFile : string * string[] * System.Collections.IDictionary * System.Collections.IDictionary * string -> bool
