Traceability in .NET–.tt files–add build date– part 4 of 7

Firstly we propose that build can automatically put the data in AssemblyVersion. For this you will need somehow to generate the current date.

We can do this in several ways – for example, a post build event. We will use a .tt file that will automatically generate this date. We will use for other things – for example, last checkin of TFS.

Running .tt files can be done either via command Build => Transform all T4 templates or in a before build event solution here . The solution is taken from – run in pre-build event the .tt file.

Next time we will add the TFS checkin id
