Linker Wizard actions + a message before Build
« on: September 24, 2019, 08:53:56 AM »
I think that actions that will require the linker wizard should add to their description:

"Run Linker Wizard before building your project."

Also, since PM knows how many actions of a given type are used, then it could be nice if it would check the project to see if, assuming at least one action requiring the Wizard is used, that a popup warns the dev to do a Wizard run before building. That, especially if the link.xml file does not yet contain the instruction(s) to force push all related necessary assets into the build.

Hi,

Yes, this would be a great update for the linker wizard,. I agree.

But, we do encourage to use custom actions when possible and make requests for actions instead of using reflection based actions, they under perform... it's always better to use a dedicated custom action.


 Bye,

Absolutely, although I encountered an issue with conditional expression that could only be solved with the Wizard, so as to explain to the build to take the necessary files with it because apparently the builder had teh dumbs and didn't think about it or something.  :D
