compare xml files used by designers

Post by dcof » Wed 11 Jul 2012 02:02

I have two versions of a C# 2010 web form application that I would like to compare the xml files that are 'hidden' behind the visual designer. I basically wante to make certain all my default connection strings did not change.
Thus to compare these various xml files, is there anything 'spcecial' I need to designate to code compare? If so, what directions will I need to follow?

Comparison of xml files does not differ from comparison of any other text files. If you need to open csproj files in the same Visual Studio where these projects are already open, the only way is to open comparison via Windows Explorer or command line. In that case you actually get a copy of csproj file, and all changes will be copied to the original file after comparison closes. That does not concern standalone Code Compare - it can open project files without any specific.
