Review Assistant + Code Compare

Review Assistant + Code Compare

Postby click2install » Mon 07 Apr 2014 07:24

When Code Compare shows files from Review Assistant they are at a temp location, therefore changes made to correct issues raised in the Code Review are not saved to the local copy.

How is this overcome so you do not manually have to navigate to the relevant sections in the working copy of the file being reviewed?

Thanks,
Maurice

By default, Review Assistant launches the 'Compare Base and Last Revisions' command when you perform comparison. Those files are retrieved from VCS, that puts them to the temp folder. To work with a working copy, you should use the 'Compare Base Revision with Working Copy' command, that will open the temporary file from VCS at the left pane, and your working copy file - at the right pane. You can launch that command through the context menu.

Thanks AlexeyN,

Is there anyway to set that as the default double click action from the code review board?

Unfortunately, Review Assistant does not have such feature. I created your suggestion at our UserVoice. If it receives enough votes, we will implement it in one of the next versions:
