TFS – List files that are checked out

with 6 comments

One of the features i’ve been missing in Source Control Explorer is the ‘status’ search. However, there are some solutions to this.

One is the “tf.exe” command line tool which you can find in the IDE directory of your vs install path at %programfiles%\Microsoft Visual Studio 8\Common7\IDE

Use the follow command statement to retrieve the list:

Syntax: tf status /recursive /user:* /server:

E.g: tf status $/myproject/ /recursive /user:* /server:myvsts.blogger.com

Another option is to use the free tool from attrice (link).

TFS – How to switch between a ‘normal’ and a ‘test’ project

leave a comment »

How can we switch between a ‘normal’ project (eg. library project) and a vsts ‘test’ project?

From Test-to-Normal:
1. Open the project file (eg. .csproj) in a text editor (or unload and edit in vs.net);
2. Remove the ‘{3AC096D0-A1C2-E12C-1390-A8335801FDAB}’ GUID from the ‘ProjectTypeGuids’ element {3AC096D0-A1C2-E12C-1390-A8335801FDAB};{FAE04EC0-301F-11D3-BF4B-00C04F79EFBC}
or remove element’ProjectTypeGuids’ completly.
You can find this element under ‘Project\PropertyGroup’;

From Normal-to-Test
1. Open the project file in a text editor;
2. Add the following element to the ‘Project\PropertyGroup’:
{3AC096D0-A1C2-E12C-1390-A8335801FDAB};{FAE04EC0-301F-11D3-BF4B-00C04F79EFBC}
3. Put a reference to ‘Microsoft.VisualStudio.QualityTools.UnitTestFramework’;
