New feature request - retrieve windows xp system information
« on: November 01, 2008, 09:05:52 pm »
Not sure whether this is the right place to ask for new feature request as I'm a rookie to CB.

Is it possible to retrieve windows xp/2000/2003 server system information ?
Such as cpu usage, memory usage, disk usage, process information.

Thanks.

Add a tool in C::B which will launch taskmgr.exe. That would solve your problem. This feature will not be included anytime in future.
Be a part of the solution, not a part of the problem.

@northsirius: Please look at wiki http://wiki.codeblocks.org/index.php?title=Main_Page
Middle right hand column has links for requests and patches etc.
The wiki is also the best place to add documentation and should be used to find docs before trying the user forums.

Seeing that this is heavily system-dependent, it is higly unlikely that this will be implemented into Code::Blocks any time soon, if ever.

However, as Biplap said, you can always add a tool to launch task manager, or write a plugin that does the respective Windows API calls.
