Fatwa: to implement the XCode Message Bubbles system for Warning/Error
reporting in MonoDevelop.
When I am not using a 56 inch monitor, the usability of the
error/warning window is terrible: it takes a lot of valuable space.
I understand that lacking any guidance, we went with the VisualStudio
like solution where a pad pops up that shows the error list and we cycle
through those with a hot key.
I am loving MonoDevelop, but it needs a few tune ups like this to make
my experience glorious. And this is coming from a hard-core Emacs
The XCode folks actually found a great solution. Instead of taking up
the screen with the pad, they show a tooltip on the status bar showing the
number of warnings and error with two small cute icons. XXX <warning
icon> YYY <error icon> clicking on either one will show the error/warning
But after a build, XCode will jump right to the first error/warning, and
will add a couple of visuals to your editor:
On the right side: the warning or error icon, including the message for the
error. If the message does not fit on the screen, the bubble shows below
the current line; If it fits partially, the bubble wraps around.
On the left side: the warning or error icon, clicking on this icon would
toggle displaying the bubble.
