I have what I hope will be a simple request..
I would like to see Code::Blocks support REAL Icons for registered File Types, Inside Code::Blocks...

I have attached a screenshot....

for instance the management frame which is the left most frame displaying all of a Project's or workspace's files..
instead of a generic icon supporting real icons would make it more easier to differentiate between file types...


ps: I'm posting in the general  sub-forum because I didn't see one for feature requests and bug reports.

"REAL Icons for registered File Types" under Windows system is different from one computer to another computer, so I think it is not a good idea to use the system's icon shown in the project tree.
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.

We could however have Code-Blocks icons that indicate C++header/c++source/shellscript/python/batch/lua/cobol etc...

Who still uses the projects tab for anything? Alt-G FTW! :)

If anyone tries to implement this make sure that loading and displaying a project with 45k file is not slowed down by this change!
