What are Actions?

 

Actions are the cornerstone of FinalBuilder. FinalBuilder has built in actions to do things such as Copy Files, Move files, run programs etc. In addition, FinalBuilder has actions to interface with a number of third party products such as Embarcadero Delphi, Microsoft Visual Studio, Subversion and InstallShield Professional.

 

Action Lists

 

FinalBuilder has two default Action Lists that you can add actions to, the Main Action List and the OnFailure Action List. When you are creating your build, you will start off by adding actions to the Main Action list. See the Action Lists topic for more information.

 

Using Actions

 

To add an action to the action list, select an action from the Action Types frame (on the left hand side of the main window) by clicking on the action type you wish to add.

After clicking on the action type, by default the properties dialog will be displayed:

 

actionproperties

 

 

All actions have a common set of properties, displayed on the Properties tab. The number of additional tabs in this dialog will depend on which action type you selected.

 

In addition to the properties window, you can also edit most of each action's properties in the Action Inspector tab.
