Newbie Question


I've just started using Visual Build where I work and I'm in the process of testing it to see if it fits our organization.

I have a question and I have not been able to find the answer in the documentation.

In our company, the process of building the version is built from the following steps:

1. Checking out several different components with different labels to the same directory.
2. Building them all
3. Building an Installshield Setup.

My question is basically this, can I use the Visual Build API to manipulate the Check Out phase of our build to include specific labels without using the GUI?? In the documentation the Step object contains only properties and none of them is specific to source safe (logically enough) - is there some way to manipulate such a property?

Thanks for any help...

Kind Regards,

Asaf Peleg

See "SourceSafe Action" in the help.

In general if you can do it from a command line you can do it from Visual Build.

The mega-power in Visual Build kicks in when you start realising how the macroing and VBScript or JScript fit together to perform magic.
