Why can't I disable this annoying dialog
« on: October 30, 2011, 11:43:44 am »
While deleting entries from compiler settings/search directories, every time I delete an entry dialog pops out. That's fine if I have one/two entries to delete. If I have more that's become tedious. Especially that there is no way to disable this window. I think it would be a good idea to allow user to disable this window.
Thanks.

I agree with you, it a bit annoying.

I can add those options in: ( I never did this quite often  :D)
compiler setting->other options, this is a edit control, you can paste many things.
If some piece of memory should be reused, turn them to variables (or const variables).
If some piece of operations should be reused, turn them to functions.
If they happened together, then turn them to classes.

Hi ollydbg,
Are you talking about changing of a control in the aforementioned tab? So I actually select multiple items? That would be great. Another thing is that the "warning" dialog should have an option to disable it. Two reasons for that:
1. usability
2. consistency in user interface - there are many windows in cb that have this option - I believe that this should be uniform trait of this IDE - if you don't like something you should be able to disable it. It would definitely make this IDE friendlier to the user, and that is not a bad thing. Would you agree?

I did this already in my local copy: Allow multiple selection of directories for all operations (copy / delete / move...). Feel free to try the patch attached and report back if it is working.

@Morten it looks like will have to finally try to learn how to build and patch cb. Will try it tomorrow. Will see how it goes, although have strange feeling that there will be something which will make me cry ;)

...did anybody of the DEVS try this patch? I think it's useful for many of us...

If there are no objections, I'll commit (be warned... ;-)).
