Release Notes

This release contains the following work item custom controls:
  • MultiValueControl: a ComboBox to accept and show multiple values for a field by showing a list of checkboxes. More details here:MultiValue Control
  • ScreenshotControl: a simple control (button) to capture a screenshot as a work item attachment. More details here: Screenshot controls.
  • AttachmentSControl: this control cab be used as an alternative to the standard file attachments dialog. More details here: Screenshot controls.
  • WebBrowserControl: displays a web browser inside a work item. More details here: Web browser control.

Simply run setup and restart Visual Studio. If you haven’t already added the custom control to your Workitem form, see the individual control details on instruction on how to embed it into the work item type definition on the server.

The controls are not backwards compatible so if you want to deploy the custom control to VS2008, VS2010 and VS 2012 you need to install all three versions.

Alternatively you can download the latest source code and build it. Not that the assembly must be compiled with the corresponding version of TeamFoundation assemblies of the client.

The deployment folder is located at the following location under a default client install: <ApplicationData>\Microsoft\Team Foundation\Work Item Tracking\Custom Controls\<Version>. <Version> is 11.0 for VS 2012, 10.0 for VS2010 and 9.0 for 2008. The *.wicc files and CodePlex.WitCustomControls.dll must be in the same location (unless you specify absolute path in the wicc). The root Custom Controls folder is the fallback location where all clients look for custom controls if it can't find it in the versioned folder.
