CVS compare dialog

Hello.

Anybody knows if the compare source dialog(The one that you can call by CVS->Compare with... and select a version - the one with 2 panels, one with the local version and the one with the cvs version of the file) is a component that we can use?
What is that class?

I would like to try to create a plugin that besides the CVS, to permit me to have like a local repository with only MY source versions(stuff that it's not fully ready for commit) and i would like to be able to compare against those files.

Thanks.

The DiffTool class can be used to show the diff window similar to the one
used by CVS | Compare With.

Doesn't the local history feature do this already?

Thanks for giving me a place to start.

About the local history. The feature is greatly apreciated, it got me out of trouble many times, but maybe i do not fully know how to use it and take full advantage, but my current issues with it is that i somewhat do not like to see those many files(the "versioned versions" of the same file) among my sources, and i would like to rename them to something meaningfull, and to be able to move the "local repository" to another computer(home) very easy.

Have you tried the "shelved changed" feature in 7.0?

and you can also give a try to the compareDirectory plugin which is able to compare (with diff view available for each item) 2 different folders

Thibaut, thanks also for the input.

I do not yet have Idea 7, but will give the test version a try.
