The Build window displays build output, progress, and results.
The window appears automatically as soon as you start the build, and it shows live build output as a log view. You can disable or enable the log output and choose its verbosity level using the Write log to output option on the page of JetBrains Rider settings Ctrl+Alt+S.
By default, if build completes with errors or warnings, the Build window automatically switches to the tree view where all errors and warnings are displayed as clickable items and grouped by projects. If there are build errors, the tree view will only display errors. As soon as the build succeeds, the tree view will display warnings, if any.
If you do not want the Window to automatically switch to the tree view, clear the Tool Window: switch to tree view after the build if build events were reported on the Build, Execution, Deployment | Toolset and Build | Presentation page of the IDE settings Ctrl+Alt+S. On that settings page, you can also opt not to display the Build wild automatically after the build is started or completed.
You can switch between the log and tree view modes of the Build window with the Toggle tree view mode button on the toolbar.
In both log and tree view modes, you can quickly locate build errors and warnings in the editor by double-clicking or pressing F4 on the corresponding items. In the tree view mode, you can also 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 Open log file on the toolbar.page of JetBrains Rider settings Ctrl+Alt+S, you can open the build log file by clicking
Builds the current solution or allows you to choose another build actions: Rebuild or Clean
Toggle tree view mode
