20210113 Enh. Request - Add Checkout option to Switch Branch window.png (72KB)

Users of PowerBuilder are required to use an external Git tool or commandline to Checkout a remote (origin) branch in the repository.

*Reproduce Steps:
RMB on a Workspace which is connected to a Git repository. Note the lack of a Checkout option.

Please see the attached image. Git platforms other than PowerBuilder offer the ability to Checkout a branch when they choose to Switch to a remote (origin) branch of the current Git repository. I'm proposing that for the Gui portion of this enhancement, that a "Checkout" checkbox be added. It would then be enabled if the User/Developer selects a remote (origin) branch from the DDLB in that Git Switch Branch window.
Thank you.
