This ones just for me.
I have been using TFS and when I read the best practice documentation for how to setup your projects I have ended up having a preference for how i like my directory structure.
Assume you have a project call BudgetForecast, I would end up with a folder structure like
Under the BudgetForecast directory would be the BudgetForecast.sln and in the Source subdirectory would be the Project file.
So how to get Visual studio to do that.
- Create a new solution
- Set the location to c:DevBudgetingProjectMainSource
- Set the Name to “Source” (this also sets the solution name)
- Set the SolutionName to “BudgetForecast”
- make sure the “Create Directory for Solution” is picked
- click OK
Your soltuion is now created but your project is called source, so just rename to project to BudgetForecas, save that and your done.
I wrote this as I can never remember whether Name or solution Name needs to be changed to source and invariably I get it wrong
