Description dmladek 2001-08-29 10:03:17 UTC
Note: This issue was created as copy of bug #13557 filed on vcscvs module.

Diff window caption should contain between which revisions diff has been made.
Also tooltip for diff tab could contain this info plus eventually some more.

It already does! "CVS Revision ..." is printed below the file scroll
pane. When the working file is compared with some revision, "Working
File" is printed there.
What additional information would you expect there or at the tooltip?
I can imagine the file path and the FS display name as the tooltip
(the same as for other opened files). Do you mean this?

No. Information you are talking about are displayed in the panel, not
in caption (title) of its window so are not visible when other window
is selected. Caption could look like this Diff: <1.14, WORK> As an
additional information that could be displayed below the file
scroll pane are numbers of changes - e.g. in form Total: X Added Y Removed Z
Changed U so user will see this first info at a glance. This could be also in

Can this be revised by someone from UI? The caption will get longer by
this change, but if it's O.K. from UI, I can implement it.
The additional information in the form Total: X Added Y Removed Z Changed U can
be below the right file.

Comment 5 Maros Sandor 2005-05-03 14:53:13 UTC
Changing summary not to contain the "CVS" keyword ... should not this issue
belong to diff module after all?
Comment 6 Martin Entlicher 2005-05-03 15:49:29 UTC
Well, this information needs to be supplied from the client code. The diff
module can not know what to put in a title/tooltip.
