User forums > Using Code::Blocks

My todo list is always empty

(1/2) > >>

I reinstalled my computer lately, and code::blocks does not seems to display TODO comments anymore in it`s list. I tried putting the list in a side column or in the message dialogs. I tried using the TODO comment generator and not any of those solutions adds any TODO to the list. I would need to search them manually.

Does anybody has a solution?

Is it a problem with the plugin?

This is my current software info:

Hi, what is the format of your "TODO" style comments in your source code?

I mean it could be:

--- Code: ---
// todo: 1

// TODO: 2

// @TODO: 3

--- End code ---

You can specify which kinds of todos you want the plugin to parse in your source code. This is an option in the TODO plugin.

I only have 2 option check box in the settings->environment panel: Change sync and add todo pannel to bottom pannel.

My todo messages are very similar to yours, here are some samples:

--- Code: ---//TODO: Define constants for program exit codes.
//TODO: Maybe code obsolete if search files
//TODO Problem: How conver single int to a char.
//TODO GLYPH to load in option
//TODO Depending on the tools, might not need everything like the examples.

--- End code ---

When I add a TODO either via standard settings in menu "Add Todo item" or by hand like

--- Code: ---// TODO (jon doe#1#): improve efficiency

--- End code ---

it shows up in my TODO panel.

--- Code: ---Version                : svn-r13456
OS                     : Linux 6.7.4-arch1-1 x86_64

same on Ubuntu

You need to check whether the "Types" include the "TODO" option, see the screen shot in attachment.
