Properties (Command Line)

Visual Studio 2005

Shows the properties of a Visual SourceSafe file or project. The information includes file type, designated as text or binary, and storage of only the latest version or all versions of a file. For definitions of the command options, see Command Options in this Help system.

ss Properties <items> [-B] [-F-] [-H] [-I-] [-L] [-N] [-O] [-R] [-Y] [-?]

You must have the Read project right to view the properties of an item. You must have the Add/Rename/Delete project right to change the file type.

If the Properties command is executed without the -B or -L option, it displays information about the file or project without changing the attributes of the file. With either the -B or -L option, the command changes the attributes of the file first, then displays the results of the change.

Shows property information on the file Test.c, and changes its file type to binary:

ss Properties -B TEST.C
