Topic: Generation on the basis of a T4-template at change of other file

All greetings! There is a T4-template which pulls exterior library and builds in the document the text generated by it. The exterior library works with files of the source codes added in the project. It is necessary to fulfill anew generation on the basis of a T4-template at change of any file participating in generation. Whether it is possible to make it standard means? P.S. Thanks to Michael Romanov's help, I already wrote own generator for other task, and he is able to group and trace changes in several files. But in this case it would be desirable to manage standard means, without necessity to build in   in a surrounding . Thanks for any helps.

Hello, LWhisper, you wrote: whether LW> It is possible to make it standard means? Under "standard means", I so understand, meant "without programming and writing of configuration files, purely adjustment in VisualStudio"? If yes, I am afraid - in any way. The generator for T4 which is used in studio, is implemented as Single-File generator. This mechanism is calculated for tracking only behind 1 file (and from T4 here depends nothing - call Custom Tool is done by studio). And other built in mechanisms somehow and on mind does not come...
