Feature-Request: Build Projects in dependency
« on: September 12, 2005, 06:29:10 pm »
Hi,
first of all I have to say that Code::Blocks is great. :)

But I'm really missing one feature. In MSVS you can set up a dependency if you have more than one project. It's very useful if you are writing a lib or so and you have a second project to test the library. At the moment I have to compile the lib and the activate and compile+run the test-app. If I could say that the test-app depends on the library and I change something in the library, then it would be great, that when I compile the test-app, that the IDE notices that the library has to be compiled first.

Perhaps there is already such a feature and I'm too blind to find it.

PS: Sorry for my bad english, I'm german. :)

It's on the way. This feature is planned for the next version (post v1) when the compiler plugin will be redesigned ;)

1.0-Release Candidate 2 will be released next monday, hopefully :-) This weekend if you're lucky.

Then wait about month for v1.0 final, and then maybe 2 or 3 months for 1.1 - it really depends on the complexity of the code revamping :P
