The Repository Browser offers a direct view into the repository and basic commands to manipulate repository contents directly. The Repository Browser comes as a stand-alone frame. It can be invoked from within the Project Window by Query|Open in Repository Browser or by Window|New Repository Browser. If a tray icon is present the Repository Browser frame can be invoked by New Repository Browser. The Repository Browser can also be invoked from Project Window commands via Repository path input fields and commands like Check Out or Import into Repository provide inbound Repository Browsers.

The Repository Browser displays the repository content with a Directory tree and a File table, similar to the Project Window . For details on the File Filter, refer to Name Filters.

The repository file system is only scanned on demand. This happens when currently unscanned directories are expanded. The Tag-Branch-Layouts will be used to display directory icons. Directory States shows the possible directory states.
