If you use a version control system, you must check items out from the Application Object Tree (AOT) or from Visual Studio before you can edit them.

To check out an element from the AOT

  • In the AOT, right-click the element, and then click Check Out.


    If you see an Add to Version Control option instead of a Check Out option, the element has not yet been added to the version control system. Click Add to Version Control, and then check in the item.

The Check Out command synchronizes the local copy with the version control system copy before checking it out. You can select multiple items in the AOT and check them out in one step.


You can only check out whole elements, not their individual members. For example, you cannot check out a method without checking out the class that contains it.
