Check-In options via Client.ini

For the computer, on which you work locally, various Check-In settings can be made in versiondog. These are listed below.

The first two settings can be configured both in the Client settings dialog (see section Client settings) and using client parameters in an INI file. The last settings can only be configured in the INI file.

Deleting components after local Check-In

After a successful Check-In, the local working directory is automatically deleted.

Set the maximum number of versions to be archived locally

Here, you can set how many archives should continue to be held locally after a successful Check-In. If a number greater than 0 is configured, exactly this number of archives ( is kept locally. Older versions are deleted (using the time stamp).

Perform detailed comparison during Check-In process

During Check-In, a comparison is always made between the working directory and the current version and, if differences are found, a message is displayed indicating this.

By default, the binary data and the timestamp are compared (depending on the configuration of the component type). This comparison is also referred to as a First level comparison.

In addition, a Detailed comparison can be performed. The detailed comparison is performed using the comparators (compare classes) defined in the component type.
