Is there a way to set the control version when using Azure DevOps build pipeline?

Hi,

 

We are using a Azure DevOps build pipeline to build the control and generate the solution file. The ControlManifest.Input.xml has a version attribute for the control. Is there a way to auto update this? 

I would like to do the following:

<control namespace="MyComponent" constructor="MyComponent" version="1.0.$(BuildID)" display-name-key="Mycomponent" description-key="My Fancy Component" control-type="standard">

 

And have $(BuildID) to re placed with the current buildid. 


Any thoughts on this?

Hi Pieter,

 

One way to do this is via an msbuild target in your .cdfproj file with an XmlPoke msbuild task: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/visualstudio/msbuild/xmlpoke-task?view=vs-2019 and pass in $(BuildId) when you build the solution as part of the pipeline

 

There’s also a builtin VSTS task “File Transform” https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/devops/pipelines/tasks/utility/file-transform?view=azure-devo...

Happy to setup a call to talk/walk through this with you if you'd like?

We made it work with XML Poke. Didn't see an easy way to do it with the file transform.

thanks @HansG Hans for testing the solution provided by @Mikkelsen2000 . It works nicely.
