  • path
    Type: System.String

    The path to the item, may be server or local.

  • includeDownloadInfo
    Type: System.Boolean

    True to get the information needed to download files. Specify false to save bandwidth if not necessary.

Return Value

Type: Microsoft.TeamFoundation.VersionControl.Client.Item
The specified Item. Throws an exception if an item is not found.


Only set includeDownloadInfo to true if you are going to be downloading the files using the objects that are returned. The call will be faster and require less bandwidth when includeDownloadInfo is false (default for overloads that don't specify it).<
