Various bugs and comment about nightly 2729
« on: July 10, 2006, 08:11:58 pm »
Dear all,

Just few bugs observed using Windows XP SP2

1) Just after the CB opening, right clicking into Projects area over "Worspace" does nothing. I think the right action shuold be to observe a menu with (Rename,Save, Save As...). If I open (load) an existing worspace or If I save the initial Worspace the menu will appear.


2) Adding a C/C++ fle a wizard starts. Unfortunately the adding fails and a window appears (error message). The image of the window is attached.


Now a comment.


Ok the wizard is a good tool but using it to add a .c or .h file seems silly (IMHO) to me. Is so a common task
that a wizard seems like to kill a mosquito with a gun. Moreover adding an header file (I cannot add a source file
becasue 2) ) the wizard ask me to select a target. So it seems impossible (to me if I am worng please let me know)
to add it into all available targets.

Now a (possible) feature request.

Is it possible to have (in addition to the wizard)the old, efficient, simple way to add a file?


Thanks and regards

Massimo

What exactly do you expect to happen? If you have no workspace open, then what should be saved or renamed?

I have just finished recompiling 2730 to see what wizard you are talking about. I see no such thing as a wizard, but a file selector dialog followed by a dialog that lets you add the selected files to one or more targets. What's wrong with this?

Ah, now that is different (but not what he said).  Oh yes, this one is evil sorcery.

Burn! Burn! Burn!  :lol:

Thomas, you wrote.

T> What exactly do you expect to happen? If you have no workspace open, then what should be saved or renamed?

I can be wrong but...you do have a workspace open at that time. It is called "Workspace" you can add a project to it,
you can save it using File->Save Workspace as. So I am especting that the right click menu is working as well.

I can be wrong .. but try to ask yourself how many other people is especting the same...

If I don't have a worspace opened, why there is a workspace icon with the string Worspace in the managment area? No workspaces opened => empty managment area.


regards

Massimo

Arrrgghhh ! Now I see the problem too, it's really annoying  :D
Really a wizard to create a new c file seems too much !
I'm waiting for a "do the job for me, I'll go holydays" button on next release....  :D

Best regards and keep on, I'm using CB since less than one week and it seems to me one of the best IDEs that I've ever seen !

I'm finding the new way to create new header/source files using wizards excessive. The old way with some new name (like "Quick create new file..." or something) should be back with some key accelerator like "Ctrl+Shift+N" while keeping the wizard, really.

In the meanwhile this seems to be the fastest way to do it if I don't need to add it to a target:

Code: Bash
  1. touch newfile.cpp
  2. newfile.cpp

:P

Agreed. It just seems overkill to use a wizard to create a new header/source file.......

Me too! Pretty, nice work, but too much.

It's like using my '73 German 2 ton Deutz diesel to cut the lawn.
Doable, but wholely unnecessary.

Can we have an "advanced user" checkbox option to turn some wizards off?

@all:
I can see why you think it's overkill. And I agree with you. For a new empty file, it is too much. But these new wizards are there to offer much more than empty files.
True, currently you can just create empty files and it's annoying having to get through a wizard for this. But this won't always be the case.

So please help us here.
Why do you think it's too much?
  • Are the clicks needed too many?
  • Is the "New" dialog scary/slow?
  • Too many pages in the files wizards?
  • None of the above? (elaborate please)


Let's see what's more annoying and schedule it for fixing :)
Be patient!

Hehehehehehehe...
I'll add
  • Tens clicks to solve a one-click job :)


I think the best would be add 'empty C file', 'empty C++ file' and 'empty H file' icon in first page after pressing 'new' button.
I think it's easy to add and allow you to keep doors opened for future enancements.
