what are you out there thinking about that ?

That was quick :shock: .

Good job; always good to know what options you're really toggling.

I think it is a good thing to add.
OS: winXP
Compiler: mingw
IDE: Code::Blocks SVN WX: 2.8.4 Wish list: faster code completion, easier debugging, refactoring

This is a must  :)

What happened to "Strip all symbols from binary (minimizes size) []" ?

BTW, don't forget always to put _() or _T() to make unicode friendly =)

This one would need an extra treatment for Linker-options - but i don't know if this is universal for all compilers - so i didn't implement Linker-options for now.

you can use this patch, which shows compileroptions if available - otherwise linkeroptions in the [].

tiwag: How about this: (it may be a little more complicated)

Why not make the list have columns like the compiler messages? The first
column would be the checkbox, the second would be the flag, and the third would
be the description :)

Can you do it?

Hi rick ! good suggestion
my first attempt to improve this dialog was also to show   1.) checkbox  2.) switch  3.) descriptive text

but it looks ugly, because some switches are really long, like [-pedantic-error]  or [-Wfatal-errors] and
almost all of the processor spefic switches like [-march=pentium-mmx]
and others are totally short [-s] [-g] and so on

hence i decided, it looks much better to append the [switch] after the descriptive text as it is now.
