In this series of blog posts I like to highlight some features of TFS/Visual Studio that people seem to overlook. In my day to day job I often see that people don’t know about certain feature that are available in Team Foundation Server, Visual Studio or some of the Powertools.
Some features are available as a Powertool. These can be downloaded from here
In this part…….
When you use Team Foundation Server Source Control you certainly know about history. Sometimes you want to see the history of a single file and see how certain pieces of code ended up there. Who did that and when was this done.
In TFS 2010 you get the possibility to annotate your file. Simply right click a file in Solution Explorer or Source Control and choose Annotate.
When you click this, the latest version of the file is loaded with annotations on the left side.
The blocks on the left show you the changeset number, the author and date. When you click the changeset number, the changeset details open directly.
Have fun !
