In Topic: P4VS NuGet support

18 December 2018 - 08:35 PM

This is implemented in 2018.4:
	 #1717269 (Bug #66552, 59357)
		 P4VS now implements some of EnvDTE.SourceControl. Other
		 Visual Studio tools can now call IsItemUnderSCC,
		 IsItemCheckedOut, and CheckOutItem. This will enable files
		 like packages.config to be checked out when they are being
		 edited by NuGet package manager.

should do what you want.

There are 2 overloads. You can see some examples if you expand them in the online help:

Are you using Helix Core API for .NET?

If yes, after establishing a connection:

string depotPath = "//test_depot/test/...";
FileSpec dirToSync = new FileSpec(new DepotPath(depotPath), null);
IList<FileSpec> syncedFiles =connection.Client.SyncFiles(null, dirToSync );

the null in the SyncFiles command is in place of any sync options you may want to use.

In Topic: Problem retrieving MetaData for a large number of files

No, there is no other way to iterate through the files. Switching to 64-bit, or doing what you also suggested earlier (getting directories) are likely your only options here.

P4API.NET is using P4API in the bridge, which is also used by P4 CLI. I'd be curious if you are able to get all of the data returned from a command line equivalent p4 -ztag fstat //MyStream/MyRoot/... If you do, there might be something that could be changed in P4API.NET to handle larger repositories better.
