Action File Extensions

Previous pageReturn to chapter overviewNext page

Many custom actions are associated with one or more filename extensions.  This allows:

 

Drag a filename from Explorer and drop onto Visual Build to quickly create a build action for that file.
Right-click a filename in Explorer and choose Make/Compile/Run with Visual Build from the popup menu to create an associated action.
Create actions by launching the GUI app from the command-line.

 

The actions with associated extensions are:
