Description Marco Walther 2005-02-17 18:37:47 UTC
Currently the OutputWindow keeps all the contents
a `user' writes to it.  But sometimes it would be
good if the OutputWindow could be instructed to keep
only a limited history of output.

In our case, the server log can grow to more than
150 MB which includes the log information from
several starts and restarts.  So only the last x
(<< 10000) lines are really useful.

So can you add something like

public void setLimitHistoryLines(int)

0 - meaning unlimited above;-)

which would default to unlimited?

No possible to include in 4.1, it's a change in API.
Comment 2 Antonin Nebuzelsky 2008-02-07 15:53:48 UTC
Reassigning to new module owner Tomas Holy.
