Show Different Items

Post by nufshm » Thu 04 Feb 2021 15:11

How can I view only different items in folder comparison. I have two folders with lot of files. Folder Comparing lists all files. is there an option to hide files that either exists in Left folder or Right. folder only. and show different files only.

thank you for response, this option "Hide Identical Files" will hide files which are same in both folders. but this is not the case. I want to hide files that exist only in one folder (either left or right). so that i can view only matched files.

for example, if I am comparing solution folder (lot of files) with patch folder (only some files). currently tool will show all files from solution folder in red color. is there an option to hide those files. then it will be lot easier to compare only modified files.

Thank you for the clarification.

There's no such an option in CodeCompare. But please advise, what VSC you run and describe your workflow. We'll try to come up with any solution/workaround for you.

A quick follow-up.

The team checked your request again, and the guys have got one more question about the first option here http://prntscr.com/z2jrle

Have you tried it yet? Was it of no help?

here is the screenshot that I am referring to.

https://prnt.sc/z2pykd

if there are lot of files in one folder and only patched files in second. then either I have to collapse all folders and then open modified folders one by one (in this case all modified files are not visible- not in view area) or i have to scroll up and down a lot to view modified files.

I am just saying that if there is an option to hide not relevant files (that exists in one side only) it could save a lot of time. it will be a good feature in your application. I hope you understand.
