Description Milan Kuchtiak 2006-06-13 10:08:52 UTC
There is another part we forgot to talk about: Error Messages Mechanism.

There could be a unified way to display error messages for the cases when :

- XML validation fails
- semantic error occurs in XML file (application logic is broken even when xml
validation passes)
- mandatory element is missing (result of empty string typed in text field)
- duplicate key value (result of incorrect string typed in TF)

I tried to implement this mechanism somehow (see the ErrorPanel, which is added
to the bottom of MultiViewEditor panel).
There is also a "navigation link" from ErrorPanel implemented that navigates
user to the source of problem.

The Error Messages mechanism (including its UI) can also be treaded as a
relatively standalone part of MV Editor.
