HomeGUI clientStream/Folder ComparerHow do I compare a file revision against the same file in a different stream?

8.1. How do I compare a file revision against the same file in a different stream?

The easiest way to do this is to select the folder the file belongs to in the stream (not the workspace) and select 'Compare With'. This will launch the Stream Comparer with the contents of the selected folder on the left. Select the stream you want to compare against by clicking the '...' button on the right.

This will launch the Stream Selector allowing you to select the destination stream. After selecting the stream and confirming with 'OK' all different file will be colored green. You can now double-click the file you want to compare which will launch the Diff Window to show the differences.

If you want to compare a particular file revision with another stream (rather than the head revision) you can open the Stream Comparer by clicking the '...' button for the left hand side. You will notice at the bottom there is a radio button 'Use Changeset'. Select this radio button and press the '...' button to select a changeset.

You can therefore select the changeset for the revision you want to compare. When you confirm this with the 'OK' button, the files on the left will be the files as they were when this changeset was submitted.
