Adaptive Cards


Adaptive Cards are a new way for developers to exchange content in a common and consistent way. Get started today by putting Adaptive Cards into Microsoft Teams, Outlook Actionable Messages, Cortana Skills, or Windows Timeline -- or render cards inside your own apps by using our SDKs.

Code format

We require the C++ code inside this project to follow the clang-format. If you change them, please make sure your changed files are formatted correctly.

Make sure clang-format version 12.0.0 and above version is used.

IDE integration

ClangFormat describes a set of tools that are built on top of LibFormat. It can support your workflow in a variety of ways including a standalone tool and editor integrations. For details, refer to

Format with script

Two scripts are provided to help you format files.

  • Windows user only: use FormatSource.ps1. This script use clang-format.exe which is built into Visual Studio by default.

    Execute below command in the root folder of the project

     PowerShell.exe -ExecutionPolicy Bypass scripts\FormatSource.ps1 -ModifiedOnly $False

If it's the first time to run the script, make sure clang-format version 12.0.0 or above in the output. Otherwise you may need to upgrade Visual Studio or use your own clang-format binaries.

[clang-format] Version is:
clang-format version 12.0.0
  • Both Windows and MAC users: Use clang-format npmjs package

    Execute below command in source/nodejs

     npm run format

Make sure npm install is run before.

Use Git pre-commit hook

git pre-commit hook is an optional process. When you run git commit, it will automatically do the format check and auto fix the format if error detected.

First make sure clang-format binary is installed in your dev enviroment. Then modify scripts/hooks/pre-commit to make sure clangFormat is point to the correct path. And finally setup the git hook.

Two ways to setup the hook:

  1. Copy scripts/hooks/pre-commit to .git/hooks
  2. git config --local core.hooksPath scripts/hooks
