I've already read the posting by rgh 03/13/02 Check in\Check out but I didn't walk away from it with a solid answer.  So is it not possible to only allow admin to check file back in with "our-of-the-box" Visual Source Safe.  I'm in a similar situation where we would like to allow our programmers to only be able to check out and have a neutral administrator look over the code before checking it back in.  If this is not possible, could someone give me information regarding the following:
"I have managed to find some VB source that allows you to write a DLL that controls all the check in/check out/add etc. functions in sourcesafe".  Thank you very much.

Hi JillyT,

Just wrote a FAQ for this with instructions on how to implement. I hope the instructions are clear enough. If they are not then let me know and so that I can change the FAQ.



RE: Permitting users to check out only

Thank you so very much for the FAQ hammy!  Unfortunately, I am a wee bit lost in that I've never worked with DLLs before so I need a bit of extra clarification.  First, where is the project and class creation being done?  Is the SCMonitor project a VSS project or a VB project?  (I'm also more familiar with VC++ than VB as luck would have it)

RE: Permitting users to check out only

It is a VB Project, all you need to do is create a new project, then add a class and paste in the code.
