Tutorial :Get Latest Version shortcut in Visual Studio 2008



Question:

Would love to have a keyboard shortcut that get's the latest for a solution I am working on inside Visual Studio 2008 from source control.

Can't find one in the documents anywhere!

In addition would be good if I could get other source control shortcuts for checking in pending changes.


Solution:1

You can add your own... tools -> options -> environment -> keyboard

Look in particular for:

  • File.GetLatestVersion
  • File.GetLatestSolutionFiles
  • File.CheckIn

and add a new shortcut at the bottom


Solution:2

I have a Visual Studio macro that will enumerate all active keyboard shortcuts to a nicely formatted HTML page, here:

But as Marc pointed out, you might have to add your own .. not sure these things you want are actually bound by default to anything.


Solution:3

The compatibility of keyboard shortcuts that work on a fresh install can be useful, unfortunately in this case it's a bit convoluted:

alt,v,p,(home) alt,f,r,l

Which selects the solution explorer, home to get to the root if necessary then get latest from the file menu.
