Title: IDE Suggestions
Post by: John Z on December 02, 2019, 09:02:54 pm
Please consider adding an IDE option to prevent switching to the Output tab after every action.
When the Project Tab is selected and a file is compiled it switches automatically to the Output
tab.  Viewing the compile results means needing to click the Project tab again and again. 
Even opening and closing a file switches to the Output tab, as does modifying a resource.

It would also be handy to be able to clear the Output tab data with a right click menu item. There
is Copy and Select All, Clear would be useful.  The Project Tab clears every time but the Output Tab
continues to grow, unless a profile is performed.  The added data on the Output is very useful but
I'd like to select it when I need it.
Would it be possible have a configuration setting to auto increment the build number, or not increment
the build number?  Might be desirable to only auto increment when the build mode is Release for example.
It is great that builds can increment now automatically, I was doing it manually before on Release
builds, but not on every file compile.

Thanks for considering.

It must be an Add-In that output to Output window, uncheck useless Add-Ins.

There is at least one Add-In for clearing output window.

Normally it is the "debug interface addin".
Unfortunately the last version of PellesC, 9.00, enables by default all addins it found in the addins directory on the very first run...  >:(

Thank you both for the tip.  The output page switching was due to the "Show IDE Events" add-in. While the build incrementing was the "Increment Build Number" add-in. Appreciate the tip.  Disabled all Add-in's until I can test one by one. Some good ideas but maybe need a bit more investigation.
