DevFaqActionAllAvailableProjectTypes

How determine all available project types?

  • create a new nbm-module using the "New Project..."-wizard and choose your target platform
  • create a layer.xml using the "New File..."-wizard
  • expand the nodes "Important Files/XML Layer/<this layer in context>/Projects" within the project view
  • the direct childnodes of "Projects" are the supported project types of the target platform (see the screenshot below)

The project type can be used for extending the project properties - See DevFaqActionAddProjectCustomizer.
