We are often asked whether it's possible to crank up the build output verbosity when building inside the IDE....think building from the command line using msbuild /verbosity:Detailed or msbuild /v:Detailed
Sure, it's possible, and we've made it dead simple to do so. All you need to do is to go into the Tools->Options menu, and go to Projects and Solutions->Build and Run and change the value of the MSBuild project build output verbosity. You can pick between Quiet, Minimal, Normal, Detailed and Diagnostic.
