I can't find the meaning of the red square or black square in Atmel Studio 7 Solution Explorer.
See attached picture.
I am trying to find clues why the compiler can't find a file I just added to the project.
Red square means the file has been modified by me.
I am looking for the answer to this same question but the claim "Red square means the file has been modified by me." doesn't seem to be true.
Does anyone have further information on the meaning of a red and black square?
Is there a reference available explaining all of the tick marks used in the Solution Explorer. I couldn't find anything but I'm sure its out there somewhere.
Try searching "Solution Explorer icons"
Thanks, but I cannot seem to find the answer. I've posted a question on a Visual Studio forum and have not gotten any answers.
It's hard to believe how simple questions such as this can be so elusive.
Again, I appreciate your response.
take care -
Is it about revision control perhaps? Do you use a plugin such as AnkhSvn?
Hi Clawson -
No, I'm not using any revision control tools . I am using a brand new laptop computer with Windows 10 (my first). I just installed AS7 on this new computer then created a test solution.
The solution builds just fine as far as I can tell but then noticed the 'red squares' and was puzzled.
I appreciate the response

Now, apparently, they have arrived.
You can put lipstick on a pig, but it is still a pig.
I've never met a pig I didn't like, as long as you have some salt and pepper.
You've been hacked by the ruskies.
Interesting that no one has come up with a definitive table.
If you have a source archiver hooked up to Studio, that could explain it. I don't know if that is possible with Atmel Studio.
