Adding references to a class file checks out csproj file RRS feed

  • Question

  • Firstly let me describe the working behavior of TFS:

    1) Whenever we add any reference to class file(lets call it "sample.cs") csproj gets checked out automatically, we could see the changes made to the sample.cs file in pending changes of TFS but csproj file will not be visible until you save the csrproj file.

    Now coming to my problem,

    I am developing a tool which will only display the necessary details, rather than complete information (such as hint path and all..). To do that i have to save the csproj file manually then only i can run my tool.

    Is there any way i could skip the step of saving the csproj file.

    Any help would be appreciated.

  • Hi nkrb,

    Thank you for posting here.

    This question does not seem to be related to programming with C#, it seems to be a TFS question.

    So I suggest that you can ask this question in StackOverflow.

    The Visual C# forum discusses and asks questions about the C# programming language, IDE, libraries, samples, and tools.

    Best Regards,

    Timon

  • Hello,

    See the following post which may or may not work dependent on the version of TFS being used.

    That's what TFS is suppose to is checkout the project file becuase you added a new class or added a reference to a DLL the project is using.

    You can always undo the checkout or exclude something from the check-in.
