Examples

This example lists all the monikers for temporary PEs in a project. Only project items that have their CustomTool property set to a custom tool that generates design-time output have monikers associated with them. One easy way to see a moniker is to create a Windows Application project and add an XML Schema project item. The XML Schema project item has the CustomTool property set to MSDataSetGenerator.

Sub OutputDeleted(ByVal deletedMoniker As String)  
   MsgBox(deletedMoniker & " was deleted.")

Sub OutputDirty(ByVal dirtyMoniker As String)  
   MsgBox(dirtyMoniker & " is dirty.")  
End Sub  

Remarks

The BuildManager provides access to the project's temporary PEs, which are created from custom tool output. For more information, see Introduction to the BuildManager Object and RunCustomTool method.
