Resharper and TortoiseSVN


Is there any good way to deal with the class renaming refactor from Resharper when the file is under source control and TortoiseSVN is the client. I have am trying VisualSVN right now but I haven't had the need to rename anything recently. I don't want to change our repository just to try this out.

Also not sure if this feature alone is worth the cost of VisualSVN.

Update: I have uninstalled the trial of VisualSVN and tried AhknSVN. I seems to provided the same functionality so far.

I know this my sound trivial but the indicators seem to be lacking some functionality, it seems like they don't trickle up. (If a file in the project is different I would think the project indicator would indicate this as well.) I tend to keep my projects rolled as much as possible, so it is hard to tell what files have changed unless the project is expanded.


TortoiseSVN 1.5 has a neat hidden feature on the check in window:

Select a missing file and a new file and right-click. One of the options will be "fix move".

I tend to refactor away, and then use this to fix any files where the name has changed.

You should really check the Free as in Beer option of AnkhSVN. They made some major improvements in v2.x and I don't feel penalized anymore when doing ReSharper refactoring-ninja moves inside Visual Studio.

I find VisualSVN to be well worth the money. There are ways to do it with Tortoise, but the integration of VisualSVN is very nice. I had tried over VS-integration tools before like Ankh and was not impressed. V-SVN has really upped the level of interaction with the repository from the IDE.

The quick trick in TortoiseSVN to fix the move sounds pretty nice as well, I need to try that out.

Another bonus: I've yet to "forgot" to add a file to the repository since I got Visual SVN.
