Subject Re: expanding properties in custom task
Date Mon, 01 Sep 2003 05:17:44 GMT
I presume we just can't do this in ant...

however, i've found that expanding on attributes is sufficient for my
purposes.

thanks,

j.

Subject: expanding properties in custom task


sorry if i missed this--i guess a pointer would be helpful:

from the manual on creating a task:
---
 If the task should support character data (text nested between the start
end end tags), write a public void addText(String) method. Note that Ant
does not expand properties on the text it passes to the task.
---

unfortunately i don't see anywhere else it explains how to make this the
case. how would i handle any properties to expand them? does Ant have any
built-in facilities readily available for this?

thanks!

j.
