SccBeginBatch function

Applies to: yesVisual Studio noVisual Studio for Mac

This function starts a batch sequence of source control operations. The SccEndBatch will be called to end the batch. These batches may not be nested.


SCCRTN SccBeginBatch(void);



Return value

The source control plug-in implementation of this function is expected to return one of the following values:

Value Description
SCC_OK Batch of operations successfully began.
SCC_E_UNKNOWNERROR Nonspecific failure.


Source control batches are used to execute the same operations across multiple projects or multiple contexts. Batches can be used to eliminate redundant per-project dialog boxes from the user experience during a batched operation. The SccBeginBatch function and the SccEndBatch are used as a function pair to indicate the beginning and end of an operation. They cannot be nested. SccBeginBatch sets a flag indicating that a batch operation is in progress.

While a batch operation is in effect, the source control plug-in should present at most one dialog box for any question to the user and apply the response from that dialog box on all subsequent operations.
