WorkItem.Open Method

Opens this work item for modification.

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

public void Open()

This method should be used only if you require historical data or non-field data. If you want to work only with the latest revision of the work item, use the PartialOpen method.

Using Open requires a round trip to the server for each work item and consumes local resources to store revision history and non-field data.

This method does nothing if IsOpen or IsNew are true.
