Description Ondrej Brejla 2012-08-13 12:01:08 UTC

I think that it would be very very usefull to have an option (checkbox?) in Tools -> Options -> Java -> Testing to enable automatic opening of Test Results window. 

Now it's opened only when some test fails. If everything is ok, just that "pretty bubble" appears for a second...and then disappears.

I'm used to that green/red bar in results window. Especially when I run my tests which takes about 45 minutes, then I leave my comp for a while, then I return to comp and I don't see anything on my screen. Sometimes I have to think if I run them or not :)

So please, allow us, lazy users, to enable that switch and to see that pretty green bar everytime we run a test :)

Thanks in advance!
