This page provides a method for managing the assets packaged in the application's BAR file. Because the packaging of assets is configuration-specific, this page provides you with the build configurations within the bar-descriptor.xml file. This file lets you specify almost any content on a configuration basis. The editor isn't quite this flexible because:
- The primary purpose for configurations is the packaging of different variants of the application code and/or data assets, such as for debugging or for different target architectures. Other application metadata, such as the name, icon, window characteristics, permissions, and other entry-point attributes are configuration-independent.
- When you require specific configuration details, the Source page provides full access to the bar-descriptor.xml file. The editor might not include configuration-specific data; in this case the page heading displays warning annotations to indicate this.
Select the build configuration to specify assets for.
|(All Configurations), Device-Debug, Device-Release, Simulator|
|Add||N/A||Create an additional configuration.||N/A|
|Duplicate||<configuration id="plugin_name" name="New_Configuration_Name">||Create a duplicate build configuration based on the selected configuration type from the Build Configurations list.||N/A|
|Remove||N/A||Remove a configuration from the list.||N/A|
|Edit||N/A||Open a dialog that lets you choose the asset source path from the workspace or filesystem (as appropriate to the SDK), and then specify the asset's target path and type (from an SDK-specific enumeration).||N/A|
|Assets||<asset path="Asset_Location">||Update the table of assets by selecting assets from anywhere
inside and outside of the workspace, and then assign types to
indicate their runtime and packaging semantics. Additionally, where
appropriate, you can move or copy selected assets from the workspace or the host OS's filesystem by using drag-and-drop.
|Add||N/A||Add an asset to the project.||N/A|
|Remove||N/A||Delete an asset from the project.||N/A|
|Hide assets common to all configurations||N/A||Hides the display of assets from the Assets list that are common to and included in all of the configurations listed in the (All Configurations) list.||Not Selected|
|Related Settings||N/A||Provide a direct link to the C/C++ build settings because these are critical to the generation of the assets included in the package.||N/A|
