# Adding StyleCop to a FAKE build script

This article explains the basics of how your source code can by analyzed using StyleCop.

## Setting up StyleCop

The StyleCop functionality is written in the default Fake assembly, so writing a target for Code Inspection could look like this:

 1: 2: 3: 4: 5: 6:  Target "Inspect" (fun _ -> StyleCop (fun p -> { p with SolutionFiles = [ "MySolution.sln" ] }) ) 

That's it! Now StyleCop will inspect all the source files in your solution.

## Move Advanced Options

### Letting the Build Fail

The StyleCop module has the functionality to let the build fail if any violations occur. This can be configured by setting the ErrorLevel value in the StyleCopParams:

 1: 2: 3: 4: 5: 6: 7:  Target "Inspect" (fun _ -> StyleCop (fun p -> { p with SolutionFiles = [ "MySolution.sln" ] ErrorLevel = Fail }) ) 

Default this ErrorLevel is set to Warning but setting it to Fail will let the build fail.

### Using StyleCop Settings File

The StyleCop module has the functionality to use as custom settings file with your own rules of how StyleCop must analyze your source files:

 1: 2: 3: 4: 5: 6: 7:  Target "Inspect" (fun _ -> StyleCop (fun p -> { p with SolutionFiles = [ "MySolution.sln" ] SettingsFile = "Settings.StyleCop" }) ) 

Default StyleCop don't uses any settings file.
