VisBuildPro Project Action Project Tab
This tab of the VisBuildPro Project action specifies the project to build and launch settings.
Filename: The filename of the project to build (required).
Profile: Specifies a build profile for the build (optional). Only the steps with a profile matching the build profile (or steps with a blank profile having an ancestor step whose profile matches) will be included in the build.
Mode: Which command-line app to launch. If Match build context is selected, if the step is built from the GUI App, another instance of the GUI App will be launched; if built from the Console App, the Console App will be launched to build the chained project. If the GUI App is launched and the build is single-stepped (F10) for the action, the child project will be started with debugging (single-step) as well.
Run GUI App in silent mode: Adds the /s switch to the GUI App command-line.
Note: Check this option and uncheck Don't close GUI App if build fails to cause the chained instance to exit on build failure.
Pause at first step for debugging: Adds the /d switch to the GUI App command-line. When chaining to a project on the local computer, this flag will also be added automatically if the VisBuildPro Project step is single-stepped.
Don't close GUI App if build fails: Adds the /f switch to the GUI App command-line. Normally, when silent mode is specified, the chained app closes on a failure; this option can be used to override that behavior.
Capture output: If checked, any output that the chained Visual Build instance writes to standard output will be captured and logged.
|•||The console app writes its output to standard output, but the GUI app does not (since it is a Windows application), so output can only be capture from the console app.|
|•||This option does not apply if the Wait for completion option on the Advanced tab is unchecked.|
Password: Specifies the project password used for encrypted protected properties (optional).
Create Scheduled Task: Click this button to automatically create a Scheduled Task using all the settings configured for the step. Any changes to the step will be applied before the task is created.
