WebStorm 2017.3 Help

Checking Perforce Project Status

Besides indicating the current file status relative to the repository, WebStorm integration with Perforce provides you with the accumulated view of the project files' statuses.

In this section:

To view differences between the current state of the project files and the repository

  1. Open the required project.
  2. On the main menu, choose VCS | Refresh File Status.
  3. Switch to the Version Control tool window, tab Local.
    The status of each file is indicated by the color in which the path to the file is displayed.

To refresh the statuses of project files

WebStorm provides two refresh modes for statuses of files under Perforce control.

  • Standard Refresh takes into consideration only the changes made through the WebStorm integration with Perforce. This improves performance because does not require connecting to the server. However, this approach does not let you know about the changes made outside WebStorm, for example, right through the p4v client application.
  • Force Refresh considers all the changes made to project, both from WebStorm and from any other application, for example, right through p4v client.

  1. Switch to the Version Control tool window, tab Local.
  2. Do one of the following:
    • To run Standard Refresh, click the Refresh toolbar button refresh or press Ctrl+F5.
    • To run Force Refresh, click the Force Refresh toolbar button perforceChangesToolWindowForceRefresh.
