Adding Individual Files in Dimensions as Build Sources

In some situations you may want to add individual files as sources. To do this, deselect the Use File Patterns check box in the Select Dimensions Sources dialog box.

To add individual files in Dimensions as build sources:

  1. In the navigation pane of the Build Management tab, locate and select the build configuration to which you want to add a source.

  2. Make sure the build configuration is checked out.

  3. Expand the build configuration until the Build Targets entry is visible in the project tree. This will also cause the Sources section to appear in the content pane.

  4. In the content pane, click the Sources title to make it active.

  5. Click the Add Sources from Dimensions icon. The Select Dimensions Source(s) dialog box appears.

  6. Deselect the Use File Patterns check box. The Files section is displayed in the content pane. When you select a folder, the individual file listings appear.

  7. Select the desired files. Notice that the file specifications appear at the bottom of the dialog box.

  8. If you also need to select files using a wildcard pattern, use the procedure described in Using Wildcard Patterns to Add Build Sources from Dimensions. You can switch back and forth between the two methods.

  9. Click OK. The selected items and wildcard patterns appear in the Sources area of the Build Management tab.
