TFS 2010 and VS 2012

    Has anyone else noticed that you cannot find all files checked out to a given user (or all users) under VS 2012?


    Under VS 2010, I could right click on the "Team Explorers" tree and select "Find In Source Control" by "status".  In VS 2012 I am limited to changesets, labels, or shelve sets.  I cannot find by status or wildcards like I could under VS 2010.

     

    As I am still pointed to the same TFS server, I would not expect this. If anyone can point to where they moved this feature, please sound off.

    Did you patch 2010? http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=29082

    @lensman: Check the TFS 2012 Power Tools. It includes that functionality.

    @blowdart:No, I did not apply that patch.  That patch indicates that it patches TFS 2012 so that VS 2010 clients can connect.  I am trying to connect VS 2012 clients to TFS 2010.


    (I have yet to see why I should upgrade to TFS 2012 other than the nice new number)

    @lucianoc:As I am not using TFS 2012, I did not consider those usable.  I am using TFS 2010 from VS 2012.

    Oh sorry, my bad!

    Leaving the taskboard and backlog management out of it (which is really the #1 feature, but in order to be effective would require your team to transition to an iteration-based agile process), here are some of the big points for me:

    • vastly better web interface (my team actually prefers it to VS itself when it comes to working with work items, partly because of the ability to use a larger font size)
    • local workspaces.  This gives you things like checking out, undo, etc. without being connected to TFS, and files are no longer marked read-only when they aren't checked out to you, and editing files using non-TFS-aware apps works properly.  basically it makes TFS work like Subversion.
    • multiple simultaneous gated check-ins (suuuper useful when you've got a big test suite and need to make sure your code base always has a 100% pass)
    • a new "test adapter" API that makes it possible to run NUnit and other non-Microsoft test runners right in TF Build, and get test run results properly recorded with the rest of the build metadata.  Code coverage results are supported, too.
