Custom Components

Sep 16, 2012 at 9:31 AM

Hi to everyone

I'm evaluating BIML and I need to be able to added a custom component in the created packages.

For example I need to include the Multiple Hash component available here on codeplex. Each time I try to add it, I get a generic compiler error.

Has anyone tried to do the same and succeeded?

This is definitely possible to do.  It's an odd hour here on east coast US, so I'm not near a computer with the proper setup at the moment.  I'll post a sample using the Multiple Hash component in the next 24 hours.

Thank you so much!!!!!

I have posted a code snippet on which shows how to use the Multiple Hash component with Biml:

This should unblock you.  Coming soon will be a walkthrough that shows the process for doing this for any component you like.  Coming shortly after that will be a walkthrough that shows how to use more advanced BimlScript features to make repeated consumption of custom tasks and components much easier.  If you'd like to help out with contributions or get previews, let me know.
