Custom Work Items Controls for TFS 2010 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Is there a listing of available custom work item controls for TFS 2010? We are adopting TFS 2010 this fall and I'm looking for updates to things like the multi-value select control, etc.

  • VSTS2008 workitem custom controls can be used in VSTS2010, by refering the Workitem DLL's of VSTS2010 from GAC. Or else if you continue with same version of dlls in VSTS2010 it will throw Null reference exceptions and your control will not be loaded.

  • Hi

    you can get few custom control samples from the codeplex and MSDN links.

    http://witcustomcontrols.codeplex.com/releases/view/7240

    http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/magazine/ee309516.aspx

    You can also develop the custom controls on your own using the samples based on your requirements.

    Decide first, that you want to develop the custom controls for Team explorer 2010 or for Team Web Access 2010.

    Please feel free to ask if you need any more help.

    Best Regards,

    Sekhar

  • Thanks for the link. I didn't release that the witcustomcontrols project on codeplex works with VS2010.

    I'm also looking for a control that would let me host silverlight controls on the workitem form in VS but I can't seem to find if that's possible.

    Aslo any additional 2010 compatible workitem controls being released anywhere?

  • The Custom controls in codeplex are developed for VSTS2008. You can use the same for VSTS 2010. you have to refer the WorkItem dll's located in GAC. IF you use Custom Controls of 2008 directly into 2010 it will not work. I am not aware of the Silverlight controls. let me try once and will get back to you.

    Best Regards,
