AssemblyInfo and Checking In / Out files

Jan 28, 2013 at 7:33 PM


I've been using the AssemblyInfo task but as it is always updating the files it copies from the workspace, the version number is always the same (I'm incrementing the revision). I noticed that another set of changes were merged with the AssemblyInfo task last June, and part of these introduced a GetFile, CheckOutFile and CheckInFiles action that can be added to the workflow.

I was just wondereing if there was a tutorial on the best place to put these in the workflow and how to actually use them with the task? As far as I'm aware, I need to build up a list of files, check them out, change the assmebly info, check them in and then let it continue to build.

Also, I'm just wondering how you can get access to the $(BuildID) token from the Build Number?
