how to take out automatically checking out file from SourceSafe in VS2005

P: n/a
Hi all,

I am using VS 2005 and VSS 6.0. I found sometimes when I open the
project in 2005, it automatically checked out some files from VSS and
the sizes of some controls were changed. I want to turn off this
option and want to set manually check out files from VSS. How to do
it?

Thanks a lot for the help!

I am sorry, maybe I didn't make my question clear. I want to make a
setting in Visual Studio 2005, if the file was checked in Visual
SourceSafe, when I want to edit the file, it will display a dialog box
to ask me to check out, then it allows me to edit the file.

Thanks!

I can't say I ever use VSS integrated with Visual Studio, as a matter
of fact I often wish I didn't use VSS at all. But I digress, the
following link might be of some assistance to you, I'm not sure if
it'll answer your question (sorry, I didn't read it before posting)
but hopefully it'll at least be a jumping off point.

There is certainly a setting for that, because that is how I have VS2005 + VSS
setup at work. Somewhere in the Options, I assume.

In Visual Studio, select Tools / Options and then click into the Source
Control / Environment item in the options tree. On the right hand side of
the window you will see options for "On Save" and "On Edit". Change both of
these to "Prompt for check out". Visual Studio will then ask you each time
it wants to check out a file rather than doing it silently.

We made this setting mandatory for our development team because people kept
checking things out without realising it and not checking them in again.
