ValueSetProviders and Work Item Categories


Travis Windsor (1611) | asked Jun 15 '10, 2:39 a.m.
I'm using RTC 2.0.0.2 and I've been using the ValueSetProviders to create subsets of enumerations based on other enumerations. This has worked well so far.

However, now I was trying to take this a little further. I am trying to create subsets of an enumeration based on the 'Work Item Category'. However, this seems to be some special sort of enumeration and won't work. The only way I can see of making this work is to create a new enumeration mirroring the work item categories, but that seems a bit redundant.

Does anyone have any suggestions on how I could use the work item categories in ValueSetProviders?

Thanks,
Travis

In 2.0.0.2, we only support enumerations depending on other
enumerations. More support in this area (e.g. Enumerations depending on
an item based value (as the category) is planned for 3.0

Thanks for the reply Patrick. Apologies for the delay. Was away on leave.

Is this feature in any of the Milestone drops, or only in the final release due in September?

Are there stories you could point me at for these requirements?

Thanks,

Travis
