Issuing SVN commands from UltraEdit

Now I am getting used to having VisualSVN around when I am editing from Visual Studio, or the Subversion integration Delphi has (although that is broken since I upgraded to svn 1.7), I sometimes miss it when editing other kinds of files from my favorite UltraEdit text editor. While googling around to see if there was some kind of plugin available (apart from upgrading to the full blown UEStudio, which I don’t need), I found this blog post from Rob. He describes how to use the Tools Configuration menu to issue svn commands. Nice! But it gets even better if you scroll down to the comments where Daniel explains another syntax that fires up the TortoiseSVN dialogs instead of the svn command line. I like that even better!

I’ve quickly configured my UltraEdit installation likewise. Thanks to both Rob and Daniel. For my own reference if I later forget how I did this, here’s a copy of Daniels description of his setup:

TortoiseProc.exe /command:commit /path:”%f”
TortoiseProc.exe /command:update /path:”%f”
TortoiseProc.exe /command:diff /path:”%f”
TortoiseProc.exe /command:log /path:”%f”

I’ve also produced nice 16×16 .bmp icons via a simple screen capture of the context menu icons Tortoise uses for these command, to use as the command icons in my UltraEdit toolbar.

Since each of these displays a dialog I’ve selectedd Program Type “Windows Program” (although I don’t think it matters), and unselected Save Active File for the SVN Show Log command (not a requirement to show the SVN log). None of these have the Capture Output option selected.
