Description Oleg Khokhlov 2003-01-31 11:40:46 UTC
When you right click on 'Runtime->HTTP Server' node both 'Start HTTP Server' and 'Stop HTTP Server' menu items are enabled. I suggest to disable one of them: when server is running - "Start ..." should be disabled and when isn't running - "Stop ..." should be disabled. Or may be it's possible to add [Running]/[Not running] string to 'Runtime->HTTP Server' node (like in Tomcat server node) build 030122_2

Icon badging might be better. Thought from UI team?

Definitely disabling the appropriate one context menu item is a must. I think given the precedent of parenthetical status (such as in the Tomcat server nodes, and status of CVS files) we should go with the suggestion of adding "[Running]" and "[Not Running]" as appropriate. Badging in this case I think will be slightly overkill (user will have to learn yet another badge) unless it is very important for the user to find out at a glance that the HTTP Server is running or not.
