Is is possible to associate Files in VSS

Is is possible to associate Files in VSS

Is is possible to associate Files in VSS

(OP)
VSS automaticaly assocaites some files like .frx with .frm (When a .frm file is checked out if a .frx file exists in VSS with the same name it is also checkedout)

I want to be able to set up simular correlations of my own.  Is it possible?

You can change the editor for viewing files under the tools, options, (general tab) menu.

Thank you for the suggestion Al.

However according to the documentation for VSS the File Types are for Adding, Sharing, and Deleting files.  I can't find a way to use them when checking files in or out.

You could also make it a default editor, but this would mean all your files would open with the associated program, and I'm sure you don't want that.

Al,

I have a list of files all with the same name but different extensions.  

Application.vbp
Application.vbw
Application.exe
Application.cbb
Application.lvw
Application.csi

You may reconize the first three as the normal project files for VB6, the last three are information files for addins that I use.  When I check-out the Applicaiton.vbp file I would like to have Source Safe automaticaly check-out the Other files on that list if they exist.  

When your using VSS through VB6 this automatical happens for the vbw files when you check-out the vbp file, and for frx files when you check-out frm files, and for ctx files when you checkout ctl files.  

I was wondering if anyone knew a way I could setup my own associations along these same lines.

-Sean
