The following example demonstrates how to iterate through the IVSSCheckouts collection of a file and display the Comment property for each checkout.

To perform this test, the file $/A/a.txt must be checked out by two users. Multiple checkouts must be enabled by the VSS Administrator. To enable multiple checkouts, on the Tools menu, click Options, click the General tab, select the Allow Multiple Checkouts check box, and click OK.

using System;
using Microsoft.VisualStudio.SourceSafe.Interop;

public class IVSSTest
    public static void Main()
        // Create a VSSDatabase object.
        IVSSDatabase vssDatabase = new VSSDatabase();

        // Open a VSS database using network name 
        // for automatic user login.
                         Environment.UserName, ""); 
        IVSSItem vssFile = vssDatabase.get_VSSItem("$/A/a.txt", false);

        foreach(IVSSCheckout vssCheckout in vssFile.Checkouts)
            Console.WriteLine("Checked out to :  {0}", vssCheckout.Username);
            Console.WriteLine("Comment        :  {0}", vssCheckout.Comment);
            Console.WriteLine("Date           :  {0}", vssCheckout.Date);
            Console.WriteLine("LocalSpec      :  {0}", vssCheckout.LocalSpec);
            Console.WriteLine("Machine        :  {0}", vssCheckout.Machine);
            Console.WriteLine("Project        :  {0}", vssCheckout.Project);
            Console.WriteLine("VersionNumber  :  {0}", vssCheckout.VersionNumber);
        Console.WriteLine("Number of Checkouts: " + vssFile.Checkouts.Count);
