Is there any way I can update the comment for a changeset? I recently did a checkin and forgot to add a message

thanks

For what kind of project?  In TFS it is fairly trivial - just open up the change set with Team Explorer, edit the comment, and click save.  Mercurial is trickier as editing version history needs to be done with care due to its distributed nature (this post has some options).

Thanks,

ok, it's TFS, although I'm using TortoiseSVN as I want to avoid source control bindings in my project files. I'll see if I can connect with Team Exporer in VS2010 and update my comment

thanks

Yup, you should be able to connect with Team Explorer, browse to your project with the Source Control Explorer, and avoid source control bindings.  Tell me if you run into any issues.

thanks, worked nicely. now you've made me have second thoughts about switching to Mercurial!
