[Client for Visual Studio] Renaming a directory


Jeffrey Cameron (4166) | asked Nov 22 '08, 9:10 a.m.
Is it possible to rename directories on your repository file workspace?? I don't think it can be done through Visual Studio, and there doesn't seem to be a way to do it in RTC that I can see. Can anyone offer some help?

I tried the integration out yesterday ... its working pretty good! Very functional. I love the suspend changes feature

Hi

From Visual Studio its currently not possible to rename the repository directory. But you can rename the folder in your local workspace and same should reflect back in the repository. May be I didn't get it properly. Can you please provide some more details on what you are expecting. Also apologies for not answering this post earlier. Somehow it missed seeing it in my browser.

Regards
Sandeep

I assume that you're talking about the top-level directories you have loaded under your sandbox root. If that's the case, you can use RTC to rename them by selecting the loaded directory and running Team > Rename in Repository.

As skohli said, I don't believe this is possible in the visual studio client.
