Working Copy View

General description

The working copy view allows you to manage with ease the content of the working copy. Resources (files and folders) are presented in a tree view with the root of the tree representing the location of the working copy on the file system. Each resource has an icon representation which describes the type of resource and also depicts the state of that resource with a small overlay icon.

When a SVN working copy is loaded in the view by selecting it in the combo on the toolbar of the view Syncro SVN Client first checks the format of the working copy. If it is a SVN 1.6 format the admin data of that working copy is loaded and displayed in a tree like form in the view using the icons specific for the status of each resource: normal, unversioned, modified, etc. If it is the old format, that is the SVN 1.5, SVN 1.4 or SVN 1.3 one, a confirmation dialog is displayed allowing the automatic conversion to the working copy to the new format, that is the SVN 1.6 one.

If you select the Never ask me again checkbox and press the Yes button then the option Automatically upgrade working copies to the client's version is automatically checked.

For each file and folder a tooltip is displayed with details like SVN status, full path, current revision number, last changed date, etc. If the tooltips seem annoying by covering useful information they can be disabled from the option Show tooltip on Working Copy and Synchronize trees.
