CSharp: reference imported C# targets
I would like to be able to use imported
C# targets the way I can use imported
C++ targets as well. This means:
- write/generate an import file which contains
IMPORTEDtargets with C# assemblies
target_link_libraries()on C# targets and imported C# targets
This should look something like this:
include(MyImportFile.cmake) add_executable(ReferenceImport ReferenceImport.cs) target_link_libraries(ReferenceImport namespace:ImportedTarget)
This behavior would be consistent to the current approach how C# targets can reference other C# targets if both are built in the same project.
Why do I want this?
- To be able to provide imported targets for 3rd party assemblies we use in some cases
- To be able to adhere the proposed way of Effective CMake
What do I need to know?
what would be the best way to tell an imported target is a
This MR is a working example which I would like to evaluate to see how things should be done best. A testcase is included for everyone who want to take a look.
