Description David Simonek 2003-03-28 10:05:39 UTC
output window will be now regular top component,
with inner tabs for various outputs (compiler,
debugger, execution). Creating of inner tabs will
be the same like is creating of output tabs in 3.5.
However, tabs will be *inside* output top
component, so they are completely separated from
other winsys tabs and they're not movable or
dockable anywhere.

This is the summary of Output window behavior in the new windowing system:

- each output stream is written into a separate "output" tab inside
the output window

- the user has to discard output tabs manually by selecting a discard

- the discard action is shown in contextual menus over the output tabs
and over the current output text area in two forms: "Discard Output",
"Discard All Outputs"

- "Discard Output" discards the current output tab/stream, or the
contents of the output window (and associated stream) if it is the
last output instance

- "Discard All Outputs" discards all output instances
Comment 3 jrojcek 2003-09-25 10:36:04 UTC
One important thing to add:

- if there is only one output instance in the output window then no
tabs are displayed and output window title displays the name of output
instance using this pattern "Output - <output instance name>", e.g.
"Output - ColorPicker I/O"

- if there are more output instances then they are displayed in
separate tabs, each tab showing the name of output instance.
