Perform the CTest Configure Step as a Dashboard Client.

ctest_configure([BUILD <build-dir>] [SOURCE <source-dir>] [APPEND]
                [OPTIONS <options>] [RETURN_VALUE <result-var>] [QUIET]
                [CAPTURE_CMAKE_ERROR <result-var>])

Configure the project build tree and record results in Configure.xml for submission with the ctest_submit() command.

The options are:

BUILD <build-dir>

Specify the top-level build directory. If not given, the CTEST_BINARY_DIRECTORY variable is used.

SOURCE <source-dir>

Specify the source directory. If not given, the CTEST_SOURCE_DIRECTORY variable is used.


Mark Configure.xml for append to results previously submitted to a dashboard server since the last ctest_start() call. Append semantics are defined by the dashboard server in use. This does not cause results to be appended to a .xml file produced by a previous call to this command.

OPTIONS <options>

Specify command-line arguments to pass to the configuration tool.

RETURN_VALUE <result-var>

Store in the <result-var> variable the return value of the native configuration tool.


New in version 3.7.

Store in the <result-var> variable -1 if there are any errors running the command and prevent ctest from returning non-zero if an error occurs.


New in version 3.3.

Suppress any CTest-specific non-error messages that would have otherwise been printed to the console. Output from the underlying configure command is not affected.
