Remarks

Use the CodeCompilerType property of a BuildProvider implementation to examine the settings used to generate and compile source code from a virtual path for that build provider.

The ASP.NET build environment uses BuildProvider objects to generate source code for custom file types within the project. Classes derived from BuildProvider provide build details for source files, Web pages, resources, and other custom items. When the build provider requires a specific programming language, it overrides the CodeCompilerType property and calls the GetDefaultCompilerType method to return a CompilerType object for the supported programming language.

To set the CompilerType object within a build provider implementation, use the GetDefaultCompilerType method or the GetDefaultCompilerTypeForLanguage method.

The CodeDomProviderType property specifies the CodeDomProvider implementation used to generate and compile source code for a build provider. The CompilerParameters property defines the settings used to compile the source code into an assembly.
