How to auto checkout TFS file by other editor

How to auto checkout the file when I edited in other editor?
You can't. Auto checkout is a feature of visual studio.
However, If you upgrade to Visual Studio 2012 AND TFS 2012, you will be able to use a new feature named 'Local Workspaces' that will let you modify files without checking them out. It will also recognize that you made the changes when you go to check in - so in effect it might be even better than having auto checkout!
