IncludedFiles Property

Specifies which files the task should include when compressing.

Data Type


Default Value



IncludedFiles may be used when compressing to specify the files to be compressed.

The value should be a pipe ("|") -delimited sequence of one or more filenames. The filenames should be specified with paths if necessary, so that the files may be found on the local file system.

Filenames may include the wildcards '?', '*', and '< .. >'. '?' will match any single character, and '*' will match an arbitrary sequence of characters. '< .. >' may be used to match any of the characters inside, or a range, such as '<a-z>'.

If wildcards are specified, the file system will be scanned and all files matching the specified mask will be added to the list of files to compress.

Subdirectories will be recursed into if RecurseSubdirectories is set to true.

The ExcludedFiles may be used to limit the files to be compressed.

This property may also be set to a macro with the variable name that contains the contents of the data to be compressed. The macro must start and end with the '%' character. The compressed filename will be the variable name. The following example shows how to specify a variable name:


Control.IncludedFiles = "%User::MyVariable%"
