Add toggle "Reset branch" to rollback dialog

Anonymous avatarAnonymous created an issue

I encountered an unexpected behavior concerning branching and rollback: executing branch/commit/rollback will keep the new branch active. After reporting this to the mercurial developers, Matt Mackall explained to me why this is the case.

My suggestion would be to add a "Reset branch" toggle button into the rollback dialog of TortoiseHg. If this toggle button is checked, TortoiseHg will execute a "hg branch --clean" after the rollback command.

Is this a good idea? At least it would make it easier for "casual" users...

    the code which runs the rollback dialog could detect afterwards if the repo[None].branch() was different from repo['.'].branch() and offer to clean this up.

Tip: Filter by directory path e.g. /media app.js to search for public/media/app.js.
Tip: Use camelCasing e.g. ProjME to search for
Tip: Filter by extension type e.g. /repo .js to search for all .js files in the /repo directory.
Tip: Separate your search with spaces e.g. /ssh pom.xml to search for src/ssh/pom.xml.
Tip: Use ↑ and ↓ arrow keys to navigate and return to view the file.
Tip: You can also navigate files with Ctrl+j (next) and Ctrl+k (previous) and view the file with Ctrl+o.
Tip: You can also navigate files with Alt+j (next) and Alt+k (previous) and view the file with Alt+o.
