Introducing the ABL Editor : Tasks : Compiling, testing, and running ABL programs : Excluding resources from the build : Excluding resources from the context menu
Excluding resources from the context menu
Exclude from Build allows you to exclude compilable resources when you build your project. You can exclude files, folders, or both from the build.
To exclude resources using Exclude from Build:
1. Open an OpenEdge project.
2. In the Project Explorer view, select the resources that you want to exclude from the build.
3. Right-click the selected resources and select Progress OpenEdge > Exclude from Build from the context menu.
Note: The context menu displays either Exclude from Build or Include in Build depending on whether a resource is included or excluded. The context menu option is disabled when there is a combination of excluded or included resources, there exists a non-compilable resource in the selection list, or the selected resource is not part of the Source tab entries.
The selected resources are now excluded from the build, and the compiler ignores them when building your project. You can view the excluded resources in the Source tab of the Build properties page.
