Build window

This window displays build results either in a log view or in a tree view. You can switch between these views with the Toggle tree view mode Toggle tree view mode button.

If there are build errors, the window will only display errors. As soon as the build succeeds, the window will display warnings, if any.

You can quickly open files with build errors and warnings in the editor by double-clicking or pressing F4 on the corresponding items. Or alternatively, you can press Alt+F1 on an error or warning to locate the containing file in another tool window.

If logging build results to file is enabled on the Build, Execution, Deployment | Toolset And Build page of JetBrains Rider settings Ctrl+Alt+S, you can open the build log file by clicking Open log file Open log file on the toolbar.
