EscapeSpecialCharactersInOutput Property

Previous pageReturn to chapter overviewNext page

Whether to escape characters in the LASTSTEP_OUTPUT and FAILSTEP_OUTPUT system macros.  Within step and macro fields, bracket characters [ and ] normally denote a script expression to be inserted into a field, and the percent sign character % is normally used around a macro name for its value to be expanded within the field.  If this option enabled, these special characters in step output will be doubled [[ ]] %%.


Note: This option should be enabled if the output macros will be referenced in step fields (i.e., %LASTSTEP_OUTPUT%) so that any special characters will be treated as literal characters by Visual Build.
