Description everflux 2013-01-19 13:14:36 UTC
[ BUILD # : 201301172100 ]
[ JDK VERSION : 1.7.0_09 ]

Running embedded PHP web server  and Easel HTML5 project from Netbeans.
It would be nice if the output of each could be stacked given the screen is
sufficiently large. That would allow to monitor the ouput of frontend and
backend at the same time.

I assume it applies to glassfish as well.

Not PHP specific, please evaluate. Thanks.
Comment 2 Jaroslav Havlin 2013-03-12 15:07:55 UTC
Good idea. It seems that it will require quite complex changes in the code.
Thanks for reporting.

I am voting for this feature as well.  In case it helps, here is my justification for this change:

My output "group" (e.g the dockable window that has output tabs) contains a tab for the output of each app I am running, and tabs for svn output, debugging output etc.

I am writing a client server app, and as expected, the client and server each have their own output tabs.

But because they are in separate tabs within the output group in netbeans, you can only have one tab focused at a time (to watch the log output)

In Eclipse, you can create multiple "groups", so that you can have one console tab active in one output group, and a different console tab active in another. 
That way I could monitor the tabs of both the client and server at the same time. 

We need this ability in netbeans as well, it makes client server development much easier.
