VersionControlServer.GetTeamProject Method

At the top level of the Team Foundation Server folder hierarchy are the team projects; the folders immediately below $/ in the tree. All folders and files under source control are directly or indirectly below the team projects. This function gets a specified team project.

Namespace:  Microsoft.TeamFoundation.VersionControl.Client
Assembly:  Microsoft.TeamFoundation.VersionControl.Client (in Microsoft.TeamFoundation.VersionControl.Client.dll)

public TeamProject GetTeamProject(
	string name


Type: System.String

The name must specify a team project directly ($/CmdLine). To get the team project associated with any arbitrary file or folder inside Team Foundation Server, you must use GetTeamProjectForServerPath.

Return Value

Type: Microsoft.TeamFoundation.VersionControl.Client.TeamProject
The returned TeamProject object contains the name (which you passed in), check-in and checkout policies, and note fields for the specified team project. If no project is found, an exception occurs. You can use the TryGetTeamProject method to avoid this exception.


An exception is thrown if the team project does not exist in the database.
