Source Control Tab, Choose Location/Open Web Site Dialog Box
The Source Control Tab, Choose Location/Open Web Site dialog box enables you to create a new Web site under source control, or to download an existing project under source control as a Web site project.
To access the dialog box, you must have source control software, such as Microsoft Visual SourceSafe installed on you computer, and you must have access to an existing Web site in source control.
To enable source control in Visual Studio .NET
In Visual Studio, click Tools and then click Options.
The Options window opens.
Expand the Source Control node and then click Plug-in Selection.
If you do not see the Source Control node, select the Show all settings option below the list of nodes.
In the Current source control plug-in drop-down list, select your source-control software.
Optionally, configure other settings in the Environment and Plug-in Settings nodes, and then click OK.
To access this dialog box when opening a Web site
In Visual Studio, click File, and then click Open Web Site.
The Open Web Site window opens.
Click the Source Control tab.
If your source-control project includes a Visual Studio solution file, you can also open your Web site doing the following: click File, click Source Control, and then click Open from Source Control.
After you have opened a project from source control, you can perform many source-control tasks, such as checking files in and out, by right-clicking the project name in Solution Explorer, or by clicking File and then clicking Source Control.
