View builds across multiple projects

One very annoying thing in Team Foundation Server 2010 is that you can only see the builds for 1 team project in Team Explorer. This is especially a problem when you are running many builds and you want to know which builds are already queued/running.

Luckily this is really easy to create yourself using the TFS object model.  Create a simple console application in Visual Studio and add the following code:

 

   1:  using Microsoft.TeamFoundation.Client;
   2:  using Microsoft.TeamFoundation.Build.Client;
   3:   
   4:  var tfs = TfsTeamProjectCollectionFactory.GetTeamProjectCollection(new Uri("http://myTFS/MyCollection"));
   5:  var bs = tfs.GetService<IBuildServer>();
   6:  var qbSpec = bs.CreateBuildQueueSpec("*", "*");
   7:  var qbResults = bs.QueryQueuedBuilds(qbSpec);
   8:   
   9:  foreach (var qb in qbResults.QueuedBuilds)
  10:  {
  11:      var status = qb.Status.ToString();
  12:      var def = qb.TeamProject + @"\" + qb.BuildDefinition.Name;
  13:      var pri = qb.Priority.ToString();
  14:      var datequeued = qb.QueueTime.ToString();
  15:      var requestedBy = qb.RequestedBy;
  16:   
  17:      if (qb.RequestedBy != qb.RequestedFor)
  18:      {
  19:          requestedBy = qb.RequestedBy + " (for " + qb.RequestedFor + ")";
  20:      }
  21:      Console.WriteLine("{0} {1} {2} {3} {4}", status, def, pri, datequeued, requestedBy);
  22:  }
  23:

Awesome! This tool solves a problem that I am sure everyone who uses TFS bumps into. It works great for me.
