What is the difference between the "Refresh" button in "Solution Explorer" and the "Synchronize" button in "Schema View?
I posted an explanation about it. Read it here.
Recently I had a problem when trying to open a new workspace in Team System. It identified the current user as being someone else (in my case the server thought that I am the server's local administrator).
Well, after scratching my head for a few minutes I tried deleting the workspace and recreating it, I've even tried removing the server and reconnecting to it but nothing seems to fix the problem.
The problem occurs because in some point I logged into the server with a different set of credentials and Windows stores cached credentials for later usage.
You can clear the cache and fix the problem by completing the following steps.
- In the Start -> Run type, control userpasswords2 and press enter. The following window will open:
- Go the Advanced tab, click on Manage Passwords and remove the server from the list.
That's it, all that remained to do is to reconnect to TFS and it identify my current user in the domain.
Multiple values fields have become a necessity in work items. I noticed a lot of people searching for this readymade field all over the Team System community, in order to enable saving more than 1 value chosen from a drop down list.Here is my suggestion for this kind of a field to be combined in your work item XML template: Linked here is a ZIP file which contains the solution for this custom control.
In addition to the code, I included in this ZIP a short READ ME file for explanations with brief instructions of implementation (It is extremely important that you read this file before you start implementing this custom control).
(For general information about creating custom controls see Narens' blog).
