Viewing History and Revisions
Go Up to Version Control Systems in the IDE
For any file that is managed by a version control system, the History view displays the file's local history information as well as its version control history information.
The History portion of the version control system integration is enabled by default. This means that when you open a file (in the IDE) that is checked into a version control system (Subversion, Git or Mercurial), the History Manager automatically displays the version control information provided by your repository.
To view the history of a file
- Open the file in the IDE (using File > Open).
- Click the History tab on the lower edge of the main window.
- On the Contents tab of the History Manager you can see Revision information. To see the contents of the file at a specific revision, click the revision in the upper pane.
- To see more detailed revision information, including the version control log, click the Information tab in the History Manager, located on the lower edge of the window. If you click a specific revision in the upper pane, the log comments are displayed in the lower pane.
