Multiple team project selection



i found out, that if you check multiple Team Projects and u Click direct under a Checkbox, the multiple checked Checkboxes are unchecked again, and just the clickt Checkbox is checked. (see upload, i marked the Region yellow) (bug, low priority)

Also it would be nice to have a button/checkbox like "Show only checked Team Projects", to have an better overview when have mulitple selected Team Projects. (Feature request, very low priority)

Interesting, I've found that the "deselection" bug depends on the operating system version you're using. But I have no idea how I could fix it since it's a built-in control - sorry.

Regarding the second request, can you help me understand how it would help you? You make a selection (without "show only selected" obviously) and then enable "show only selected" to filter the list down to only the selection, but to what purpose? As soon as you uncheck one it would disappear as well, that could possibly be confusing?

Okay, thank you. :)

Before doing critical changes to the tfs you could make sure only the needed team Projects is selected. Even if you have a high number of team Projects, you don't need to scroll down. It's easier to make sure you don't update a wrong or not enough team Projects.
  1. Selecting the Team Projects you wanna update
  2. select "Show only selected"
  3. check if you have the correct Team Projects selected
  4. apply security
if you click that button/checkbox, you don't need to update the selection if you uncheck something. if you wanna hide that newly unchecked team project you need to recheck "Show only selected". Maybe that way is less confusing.

Checkbox "Show only selected" -> uncheck and check again for updating "selected only view"
Buttons: "Show all" / "Show selected" Buttons -> Click "Show all" and "Show selected" again to update the "selected only view"

It's a nice to have Feature, not a must-have. :)

thank you

Resolved with changeset 77327: Added support for showing only selected Team Projects; fixed TFS version detection for Visual Studio Online

The latest version that was just released now has the fix for the Git issue and the feature to show only selected projects. Enjoy :-)
