Random thoughts about everything and nothing

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).
