Test Area 8: Plug-in Switching

The Visual Studio integrated development environment (IDE) has the user interface (UI) to change the current source control plug-in. This test area provides test cases for the process of picking which plug-in to use for solution source control.

The following Visual Studio integrated development environment menu paths are used in the test cases.

  • Current source control plug-in: Tools -> Options -> Source Control -> Plug-in Selection.

  • Change source control binding: File -> Source Control -> Change Source Control

Changing the source control plug-in for a solution is possible without exiting Visual Studio or reloading the solution. In addition, the current source control plug-in automatically changes to the one used by a solution when that solution is loaded.

The following are specific test cases for the plug-in switching test area.

When a user loads a solution that is under source control, the solution is automatically loaded and the appropriate source control plug-in is selected as current.

Automatic source control plug-in change

  1. Select plug-in under test as current (Tools -> Options -> Source Control -> Plug-in Selection.)

  2. Create a new project.

  3. Add the solution to source control.

  4. Select another plug-in (for example, Visual SourceSafe).

  5. Accept unloading solution prompt.

  6. Reopen the solution from disk.

Solution is opened.

Plug-in under test is the current source control plug-in.
