Video: Comparing More Than One File At a Time in Visual Studio

Posted by Keith Elder | Posted in Videos, Visual Studio | Posted on 09-03-2008

Visual Studio has long supported the concept of opening more than one file.  Most all IDE tools and text editors support this concept so it is nothing new.  In Visual Studio as files are opened they are displayed along the top in tabs (also a standard convention).  This allows developers to switch between files they are working on easily.  However there are times when developers need to compare two files at the same time.  Using Tabbed Groups developers can view files vertically or horizontally.  There is also the ctrl-tab feature which allows developers to quickly switch between files they have open.  Here is a video that shows how this is done.  (the video is below, requires Silverlight)
