Addin for Visual Studio 2005 to prompt user to get the latest version before checking out a file for edit

Introduction

This project allows TFS users the ability to get the latest version before editing a file upon check-out. Based on the code started here, this project adds two things. One is the prompt - It asks the user if she/he wants to get the latest version (not always do they want to do this - They may be editing an earlier version on purpose). The second change is that the original requires the developer to modify the devenv.exe.config file to add the TFS server information. This project detects the currently connected server/project and uses that information.

Using the Code

The important changes come in the TFSAccess class. Notice below that the server is detected and when a change occurs, that is also detected.

C#
internal TFSAccess(DTE2 applicationObject)
{
  _TFSExt = applicationObject.GetObject
		("Microsoft.VisualStudio.TeamFoundation.TeamFoundationServerExt") 
		as TeamFoundationServerExt;
  if (_TFSExt != null)
  {
    if (_TFSExt.ActiveProjectContext.ProjectName == null)
    {
      _TFSExt.ProjectContextChanged += 
		new EventHandler(this._TFSExt_ProjectContextChanged);
    }
    else
    {
      _previousDomainName = _TFSExt.ActiveProjectContext.DomainName;
      Connect();
    }
  }
}

private void _TFSExt_ProjectContextChanged(object sender, EventArgs e)
{
  if (_TFSExt != null && _TFSExt.ActiveProjectContext != null && 
			_TFSExt.ActiveProjectContext.DomainUri != null)
  {
    if (_previousDomainName != _TFSExt.ActiveProjectContext.DomainName)
    {
      Connect();
      this.OnConnectToTFS(new EventArgs());
    }
  }
  _previousDomainName = _TFSExt.ActiveProjectContext.DomainName;
}
