TFSPlus – A Visual Studio TFS Addin that adds Source Control JuJu and MoJo

CodePlex - TFSPlus - Visual Studio Addin for Team Foundation Server


TFSPlus is an Addin for Visual Studio that provides developers with useful extensions for performing Source Control operations against Team Foundation Server.

It is a .Net library, developed in C#.


  • Find File in TFS Explorer - Navigate the Source Control Explorer window to the location of the selected file. Available in Solution Explorer, Code Window, and Pending Changes Window.
  • Get Latest Version (Forced) - Gets the selected file or folder (recursive) even if local version matches the server version (useful if file has been deleted locally since last Get). Equivalent to Get Specific Version, with bottom checkbox ticked. Available in Solution Explorer, Source Control Explorer, and Code Window.
  • Open Solution in New Environment - Opens the selected solution file (.sln) in a new instance of Visual Studio. Available in Source Control Explorer
  • Get This Version - Gets the selected file or folder at the specified changeset version. If you have the file checked out, will 'rollback' to that version (ie. no conflict when you later checkin). Available from History window.
  • Checkout non-latest notification - If you do not have the latest version of a file when you check it out, you will be prompted by a warning message box.
  • Restore Source Control Explorer location on startup - Current location in Source Control Explorer is persisted on closing Visual Studio, and restored on next startup.

Additional Notes
