Namespace:  System.CodeDom.Compiler
Assembly:  System (in System.dll)

public virtual CompilerResults CompileAssemblyFromFile(
	CompilerParameters options,
	params string[] fileNames
)

Parameters

options
Type: System.CodeDom.Compiler.CompilerParameters

A CompilerParameters object that indicates the settings for the compilation.

fileNames
Type: System.String[]

An array of the names of the files to compile.

Return Value

Type: System.CodeDom.Compiler.CompilerResults
A CompilerResults object that indicates the results of compilation.

ExceptionCondition
NotImplementedException

Neither this method nor the CreateCompiler method is overridden in a derived class.

NoteNote

In the .NET Framework versions 1.0 and 1.1, this method is provided by the ICodeCompiler implementation that is returned by the CreateCompiler method of the provider. In version 2.0, this method can be called directly on the code provider even if it is not overridden by the code provider. If the code provider does not override this method, the ICodeCompiler implementation is called by the base class.

Notes to Inheritors

If you override this method, you must not call the corresponding method of the base class. The base-class method creates a generator in the derived class using the obsolete CreateCompiler method for compatibility with preexisting providers that use code compilers. The base-class method then calls the equivalent method in the ICodeCompiler implementation to perform this function. You will get a NotImplementedException if you call the base-class method from a code provider that does not use a code compiler.
