[Feature Request] with folders in project-management,
« on: March 15, 2007, 01:39:08 pm »
Hi,

In the project-management, the tree-control doesn't open/close folders with double click upon the folders. This is a normal behavior in almost every program with tree-controls. In code::blocks svn 3681 (linux-kubuntu) this feature only work by clicking exactly on the small arrow close the each folder. If you have a big project (that is my case) I use all the time such of features and it will very fast if I don't have to be so precisely upon the small arrow and just make double click upon a folder.

As second request: To add files inside of a virtual folders is a bit inefficient, because first I have to add the new files to the project, later search this new files on the project-management and drag/drop the files in the right folder. Also if you tree-control is full with folders, and the new files are at the end of the list, to put this new files in the first virtual folders is really an adventure :-p, because if you start to drag the tree-control doesn't move with the mouse on the control-border and because you tree-control is full you can't see the folder you need. It could be much simple by simple right click on a folder and to have an option "add file" isn't?

I hope you consider my humble  request :-)

thanks a lot, and again congratulation for this outstanding piece of software :-)

best regards,

    Idhan.

pd: sometimes if I rename a virtual folders and I save the project, the system add again the folder with the original name (with all its data) plus the new renamed folder. But this problem is only sometimes and I am trying to reproduce this problem the let you know about it.

Hi,

I want to ask for really support the project-management with virtual folders on CB. I don't know if many people use the 3 layer programming model or other similar structures of programming to organize you code. I am developing more and less a big software and I have many files of different types. The organization of these files by extension "cpp","h" etc is for far  inefficient and the "virtual folders" structures became a necessity in modern programming. Code blocks currently support this feature but seem to be that has not been under develop (or at least testing) since long time, because I crash the program at last 10 times a day only by adding, moving or removing files or virtual folders.

I am always using the last releases but the problem with this feature persist.

I hope you consider my request,

best regards.

  Idhan.

pd: I offer my self as testing man if any developer want to improve this feature. I am working more than 10 hours a day with CB, so I am sure I could be a good tester :-)

You could start by reporting the bugs (or if you already have, point us to them).
Be patient!
This bug will be fixed soon...

Thanks for answer me.

Code blocks generate some crash reports. The program automatically send it backs to the developers or should I send my self? If I have to.. where is the file saved to send it with a small description.

I can more and less reproduce some crash, I will work on it and I will report them (should I report these problems here???). I hope at the moment you can add some features to the project-management, as I have pointer in the first message of this thread (they will improve notably the usability of CB).

thanks a lot again and I will keep you inform of my testing.

Best regards,

   Idhan.

Because the nightly builds contain no debug symbols, these reports could only help us only when nothing else can.
What would be better is for you to describe step-by-step what you did to make it crash, preferably with a small sample project.
Be patient!
