Re: [ui-best-practices-working-group] Question regarding error notification in editors

Hi, Eitan.
I believe the guideline is out of date.

Prior to Eclipse 3.0, problems indeed appeared in the tasks view. Starting with Eclipse 3.0, markers with a marker type of problem moved to the problems view. [1].
In Eclipse 3.4, a generic markers view was introduced for those who preferred the old style. [2].

From a guideline point of view, it probably makes sense to change this to say "Problems view." From an implementation point of view, it's best to mark the resource with a problem marker, knowing it will show up in whichever view the user chooses.

Subject: [ui-best-practices-working-group] Question regarding error notification in editors


Hi guys,
I came across this guideline:

Guideline 6.29
Use the Task view to show errors found when the Save command is invoked.
http://wiki.eclipse.org/User_Interface_Guidelines#Error_Notification

Is this a mistake? Shouldnât we use the Problems view for error notification instead of the Task view?

Best Regards,
Eitan_______________________________________________
