Description Marco Walther 2005-02-17 18:37:47 UTC
Currently the OutputWindow keeps all the contents a `user' writes to it. But sometimes it would be good if the OutputWindow could be instructed to keep only a limited history of output. In our case, the server log can grow to more than 150 MB which includes the log information from several starts and restarts. So only the last x (<< 10000) lines are really useful. So can you add something like public void setLimitHistoryLines(int) 0 - meaning unlimited above;-) which would default to unlimited? Thanks, -- Marco

No possible to include in 4.1, it's a change in API.
