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)

Icon badging might be better. Thought from UI team?
Comment 2 Ann Sunhachawee 2003-03-24 18:27:30 UTC
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.
