Test Area 5: Change Source Control

This source-control plug-in test area covers changing the source control via the Change Source Control command.

Change Source Control command provides four basic functions for the user:

  • Bind:

    Allows a user to establish or reestablish a source control link between a solution/project and the version store.

  • Unbind:

    Removes a project/solution from source control on a per-connection basis.

  • Connect/Disconnect:

Toggles connected or offline state of the controlled solution, which is covered in Area 3. For more information, see Test Area 3: Check Out/Undo Checkout.

The following Visual Studio integrated development environment menu path is used in the test cases.

Change Source Control:File, Source Control, Change Source Control.

The following are specific test cases for the Change Source Control command test area.

Bind allows the user to add source code control info to the selected projects and solutions. The user is typically prompted to identify a project in source control to which these are to be added. The user may not create a new project in source control as part of this operation (contrast with Add to Source Control).

  13. Open solution from source control to a new location.

Result from Step 12:

Solution and project are bound to and written to the new target in the version store.

Solution and project files are checked in.

Version store project hierarchy matches folder hierarchy of the project on disk.

Result from Step 13:

All project items are downloaded.

Bind to location that is in sync with client

  1. Create a project.

  2. Add the solution to source control.

  3. Create a duplicate of the solution and project in the version store (Share and Branch if using Visual SourceSafe).

  4. Open Change Source Control dialog box (File, Source Control, Change Source Control).

  5. Unbind All.

  6. Click OK to close Change Source Control dialog box.

  7. Reopen Change Source Control dialog box.

  8. Select all.

  9. Click Bind.

  10. Browse to the branched location of the solution and project (from step 3)

  11. Click OK to close the Change Source Control dialog box.

  12. Get Latest recursively for all items.

File content after the get is the same as before the get.

Bind to location that is out of sync with client

  1. Create a project.

  2. Add the solution to source control.

  3. Create a duplicate of the solution and project in the version store (Share and Branch if using Visual SourceSafe).

  4. Modify files in the branched project in the version store.

  5. Open Change Source Control dialog box (File, Source Control, Change Source Control).

  6. Unbind all.

  7. Click OK to close Change Source Control dialog box.

  8. Reopen Change Source Control dialog box.

  9. Select all.

  10. Click Bind.

  11. Browse to branched location for solution and project.

  12. Click OK to close the Change Source Control dialog box.

  13. Accept Warning dialog box if it appears.

  14. Get Latest recursive for all items.

Files that were modified in Step 4 are also modified locally.

Bind solution that was never under source control

  1. Create an empty folder in source control.

  2. Create a client project.

  3. Open Change Source Control dialog box (File, Source Control, Change Source Control).

  4. Bind the solution to empty location in source control.

  5. Click OK to close the Change Source Control dialog box.

  6. Click Continue with these bindings in confirmation dialog box.

  7. Click OK in the warning dialog box if it appears.

Solution is added to source control.

Solution and project are checked out.

Cancel Bind

  1. Create a project.

  2. Add the solution to source control.

  3. Open the Change Source Control dialog box.

  4. Unbind All.

  5. Click OK button to close the dialog box. If this step succeeds, continue to next step.

  6. Reopen the Change Source Control dialog box.

  7. Bind to unrelated location.

  8. Click Cancel.

Result from Step 5:

The solution is no longer under source control

Result from Step 8:

Solution is still NOT under source control.

Unbind removes source code control info from projects and their solution. The affected projects and solution are based on a mix of user selection and how the items were added to source control.
