The Build Groups pane enables you to build, compile, or clean selected projects or packages inside a project group. This feature is useful for focused work on modules (projects) that exist inside larger applications (project groups).

To open or close the Build Groups pane, click Show Build Groups pane (ShowBuildGroups.bmp) in the Project Manager.

Item Description
