Source Control toolbar buttons disabled for Git (VS 2017 RC)

    Question

  • When I display the Source Control toolbar in Visual Studio 2017 RC, all of the buttons are disabled. I have the source control set to Git in Tools/Options, and the History and Blame work if I invoke them by right-clicking on a source file. How can I get the toolbar buttons enabled?

  • Hi T Scherer,

    This forum discusses and asks questions about extending and integrating with Visual Studio, Since your issue is more related to visual studio general, we'll move it to vs general forum for suitable support.

    Thanks for your understanding and cooperation.

    Best regards,

  • Hi T Scherer,

    According to your description, VS2017 RTM has been released, I suggest you could update your VS2017RC to VS2017 RTM.

    Open VS2017 installer-> update

    To see whether has the same issue.

    And please make use you have installed git components, please refer to the following screenshot:

    Sincerely,

  • Hi Oscar,

    I've installed the release version of Visual Studio and the Git for Windows component, but the toolbar is still disabled. I also noticed that the toolbar buttons don't use Git terminology; for example, there's no "commit", "fetch", "rebase", etc. Is the Source Control toolbar intended to be used with Git?

  • Hi T Scherer,

    Yes, I can repro the issue, Source Control toolbar buttons were disabled for GIT.

    but Open VS2017 -> view -> Toolbars -> select another option "source control –team foundation", and  the buttons in this toolbar are enabled just in TFVC. Actually this issue has been reported to the product team here before:

    https://developercommunity.visualstudio.com/content/problem/992/source-control-toolbar-is-disabled.html

    But if possible, I suggest report a new feedback to the product team though the Help->send feedback in VS2017.

    PS: you can confirm with visual studio product team if the source control toolbar only used for TFVC version control system or it’s also used for Git version control system.

    Thanks,

    Jack
