Microsoft.Build.Tasks.Hosting Namespace

The Microsoft.Build.Tasks.Hosting namespace contains classes used internally by MSBuild.

Interfaces

ICscHostObject

Defines an interface that allows the Csc task to communicate with the host integrated development environment (IDE).

ICscHostObject2

Defines an interface that allows the Csc task to communicate with the host integrated development environment (IDE).

ICscHostObject3

Represents the Csc host compiler.

ICscHostObject4

Represents the Csc host compiler.

IVbcHostObject

Defines an interface that allows the Vbc task to communicate with the host integrated development environment (IDE).

IVbcHostObject2

Defines an interface that allows the Vbc task to communicate with the host integrated development environment (IDE).

IVbcHostObject3

Defines an interface that allows the Vbc task to communicate with the host integrated development environment (IDE).

IVbcHostObject4

Defines an interface for the Vbc task to communicate with the IDE. In particular, the Vbc task will delegate the actual compilation to the IDE, rather than shelling out to the command-line compilers.

IVbcHostObject5

Defines an interface that proffers a free-threaded host object that allows for background threads to call directly (avoids marshalling to the UI thread.

IVbcHostObjectFreeThreaded

Defines a free-threaded interface for the Vbc task to communicate with the IDE. In particular, the Vbc task will delegate the actual compilation to the IDE, rather than shelling out to the command-line compilers.

This particular version of Compile (unlike the IVbcHostObject::Compile) is not marshalled back to the UI thread. The implementor of the interface is responsible for any marshalling.
