Who checked out a file?

Mar 6, 2009 at 8:12 AM
It keeps annoying me that Visual studio tells me when a file is checked out by someone else: "Checked out by someone else or in another place" and there is no way to find out who or where it has been checked out instead of opening the source explorer and finding the file...

I'd love to see a feature that displays the info quick instead of browsing through the whole source tree... What do you think?

I've found the icon/tooltip in Solution Explorer indicating the file is checkedout by someone is very unreliable.

If you attempt the checkout you would face the warning "The item $/Project/Item is locked for check-out by JOHN in workspace JOHNPC_JOHN", but only if multiple checkouts is disabled.

With TFSPlus, you can right-click on the file, and choose "Find File in Source Control Explorer".

Nice, thanks! That should do the trick easier :)
