Code compare in combi with Vault 4

Post by Koob » Wed 22 May 2013 13:06


I would like to use Code Compare in combination with SourceGear Vault (v4), because cc is far superior over the standard sourcegear diff tool.
Problem is that vault, when retreiving a file from history, will not take into account the file extension: the file name is something like 35727637.27683
Therefore Code Compare will not apply the correct type settings like code highlighting.

Is there a way to let Code Compare evaluate the contents of the file to figure out the type of the file instead of using the extension?
I think 95% of the files are files. Is it possible to set this as the default type for Code Compare?

Hello. You can setup the Code Compare default language from Options dialog box (Tools -> Options -> Environment -> Default language)
You can also change the current document's language using Language drop-down list on the Code Comparison toolbar.
