CVS Unreserved Checkouts - Releasing a form


So far we have checked out a working copy that is "read only". Whilst we did not necessarily have to do this (CVS can track what files change) it helps now to illustrate a point.

Open the IDF and attempt to change a file. The "2009 - Occurence is locked." message should appear in the IDF message line.

Releasing a form using the CVS command line client

To release a form for editing use the "edit" command:

cd sources\components.dir
cvs edit I_DRIVER.XML

Releasing a form using the Tortoise CVS

Using windows explorer select the file to release and right click. Select "CVS Edit" from the menu.

When the edit has completed press "OK" to remove the log window

Releasing a form using the WinCVS

To release the checked out copy of the source right select the file within WinCVS and use the pulldown menu "Trace->Edit selection".
