|Re: [cdt-dev] Hiding running threads (new UI)|
Yes, I was worried about the JDT.Â Do you think "Native" will be clear to
users?Â Is there some other wording we can use?

To: CDT General developers list.I'm not sure I like them being referred to as C/C++ threads. In theory, if you're running Photran, they could be Fortran threads too. In fact, threads have little to do with language, they're part of the run-time. Did we want to call them "Native" threads instead? I assume you're trying to differentiate them from Java and other type threads.Doug.Hi,Âas discussed at the CDT conference call, there was a request to add a new featureto Debug to allow users to hide running threads.Â The idea is that when dealingwith large numbers of threads, the user is interested by the suspended ones, notthe running ones.Â We agreed in the call that this was a nice feature and thatit was ok to add it before M7.Â Of course the feature will be off by default, so therewill be no impact unless explicitely enabled.ÂFor details please see: https://bugs.eclipse.org/375585ÂI'm notifying the community because we are planning to add a new context-menuitem to the Debug view, as show below.Â Please note that this entry gives quickaccess to a global preference, and is not context-sensitive.ÂIf you don't think this is a good idea, please voice your concerns, time is short.ÂThanksÂMarcÂÂ
