The delay for those two notifications is quite long, so unless you are an extremely slow reader, it probably disappeared because you clicked onto it.
Notifications will stay open indefinitely if you move the mouse over them, and will close immediately if you click on them.

They do disapear to quickly on my machine, I even downloaded the svn source to see if the delay was to short but it seems like it was set for a good delay, it must be the infowindow class or wxwidgets or something on both our machines or maybe its psychological?

Where'd those yellow things come from? I find them very annoying.
They only appear in few places, and they are a lot less intrusive than the message boxes that would be displayed in the first place.
Personally I would prefer them.

I never clicked on the compiler warning notification, and it went away very quickly, never to come back again.

I new to wx and I have installed the 03/08 version but when I use the wxSmith GUI editor
Code::Blocks crash.
I'm using a Fedora core 5.
There is an RPM of the stable release ?
How can find instruction for the wxSmith ?

Thanks to all

wxSmith is being revamped to deal with its instability on linux, check out the post here:

Maybe I read too fast then  8)

The message reads:
Quote
Global compiler variables have been extended.
You can now have several independent sets of GCVs,
and variables can have user-defined members.

Your existing configuration is being migrated
and will be available as the "default" set.
To me, 10 seconds is plenty to read this text (which does not tell a big deal of news either ;)).

Oh well, I did not want to show yet one more tip at startup stating "Move your mouse over notifications to make them stay open". That would indeed have been very annoying :lol:

At first I didn't even think the messages were coming from codeblocks, because I had some web pages opened and I thought it was just some javascript thing. They popped up over Firefox, and C::B was loading in the background.

The plugin one stayed for like 8 seconds. The compiler one was very quick. That's why I only caught those three words from it. It went away while my eyes were just focusing on the first one. But thanks for assuming it was because I'm some kind of illiterate idiot. :lol:

I think a plain messagebox would be better, it's standard, expected behaviour. I wonder what people with bad eyesight would think of these quick little boxes with tiny fonts?

Also, this build will still not show up on tht titlebar when it's done loading if it's not in focus, and the window sizing issue I talked about still exists. When the window is maximimzed, the windowed sized variables are overwritten with the size of the screen, so that restoring the window to windowed state will return it to it's old saved position, but at full screen size.  :x

I would like to know why the ansi version is not in the main message of the
pool. It is the one above a good one to use?

because we don't support the ansi anymore. Official focus is on Unicode.
Seth is now providing from time to time an ansi build. But we want people to use the Unicode ones, for those on win9x well therefor we have from time to time an ansi build.

i think, this should not mean, that ansi-builds are no longer supported ...
it only means that unicode-builds are possible too and standard for development

Many Thanks! It is because I installed the C::B on My Win98. But if there is
a ANSI , ok. I won´t be update but no problem.

ANSI builds are only good for Win95/98/ME. We will support it until we hit version 1.0. After that milestone, ANSI support will be dropped officially.
Until then, ANSI builds will be released from time to time, thanks to a couple of members that can provide them.
Be patient!
This bug will be fixed soon...
