Checkout command

This command launches the CVS Checkout dialog.  Users may create/modify a CVS account and checkout options through the CVS Checkout dialog.



The desired account may be selected from the Account dropdown.  If a CVS account doesn't already exist, pressing the Modify button will launch the CVS Manager dialog where users may add/remove an account.


The Module dropdown lists the top level directories in the CVS repository.  Pressing the Update button will update the list of modules in the CVS repository if this feature is supported by the CVS server.  Modules will be created as subdirectories of the Local root path.  


The Local root path field may be used to specify the path to the local directory where documents checked out through CVS should be written.  The "..." button may be used to browse to the desired directory if this is preferred.


Checkout Options

If Use module name for checkout folder is selected, then the module name will be the name of the folder under which the files being checked out will be written in the local copy directory defined in the Local root path field.  If this is not selected the Folder field will be active and the name to be used should be defined here.


If Checkout default HEAD branch is selected the most current revision of the specified module will be used as the beginning point for opening the desired files.  If this is not selected the Branch/Tag field will be active and the branch desired for opening should be specified here.


Add Files To

These settings relate strictly to UEStudio projects and are not directly related to CVS.  If New project is selected then files checked out through this dialog will be added to a new project.  When the Checkout button is pressed the Project Settings dialog will be launched and the new project parameters may be defined.  If Current project is selected the specified files would be added to the active project.


Pressing the Checkout button will retrieve the files under the specified branch.  When the specified files are retrieved, each directory should contain a CVS subdirectory in which the CVS information related to the files in the active directory will be stored.  This will include a list of files, versions and tags in the active directory.


* Please note: This feature is only supported in UEStudio, and not in UltraEdit.
