|Summary||0035493: cannot copy more than one compiler message in messages window|
|Description||I compiled a program and got several compiler warnings and hints I need to send a colleague as mail. Therefore I want to select several warnings to copy them to the clipboard. But this is not possible, I tried all combinations of left/right mouse button + Shift/Alt/Ctrl.|
I am sure it is a bug not a feature request because when right-clicking on the messages window I can select in the context menu "Copy -> Copy selected messages to clipboard". So it was once possible to select several messages
|Tags||No tags attached.|
|Fixed in Revision||r65311, r65312, r65318|
||This issue is still in Lazarus 2.1SVN|
If memory serves me well, then there already is a bugreport about this.
It seems the selection never worked for multiple messages. It is clearly an unimplemented feature.
The code is complex. The control is entirely custom drawn. Not easy. Must scratch head for some time.
(Or simply remove the "Copy selected messages to clipboard" entry from the submenu)
Was there any version of Lazarus where this actually worked?
> Was there any version of Lazarus where this actually worked?
Yes, it was working in Lazarus 1.2.0, before compiling with threads was implemented. In msgview.pp there was a simple TTreeView "MessageTreeView" where the messages were shown.
Heh, now it works again! :)
Please test with r65312.
Because this was a regression from 1.2.0 and because the popup menu kind of promises multi-line selection to a user, this is considered a bug fix instead of a new feature.
Will be merged to 2.2 after some testing.
||Windows 7, Lazarus 2.3.0 r65312 FPC 3.2.2 i386-win32-win32/win64 is working fine!|
Problem found selecting the first line.
Sample output from a project.
1 Compile Project, Target: lazspell.exe: Success, Hints: 13
2 hunspell.pas(104,27) Note: Call to subroutine "function GetDebugLogger:TLazLogger;" marked as inline is not inlined
3 hunspell.pas(133,31) Note: Call to subroutine "function GetDebugLogger:TLazLogger;" marked as inline is not inlined
4 hunspell.pas(135,35) Note: Call to subroutine "function GetDebugLogger:TLazLogger;" marked as inline is not inlined
If you try to select the first line (1) with left mouse click and then the third with shift+left click, only select line 3.
Also if you click on line 1 and go to the popup menu (right button click) there is no selection available.
Works well if you start with the second line.
||Yes, same here. Selecting 2..4 is working fine. Selecting 1..4 only select 4.|
It is by design, the first line is the header. I admit it is illogical and should be changed. I will look at it.
[Edit] You cannot select from many groups at one time either as ASerge mentioned in the forum.
A group (class TMessagesCtrl) deals with one package or project. The package compilations can be threaded and advance in parallel.
Each group has a header, the message lines, and a progress line at the bottom while it compiles.
Selection between groups will be difficult to implement. The whole logic must be moved to another class. Threading adds to the challenge.
Including the first header line in a selection should be easier but somehow I did not get it working yet. The line number system must change and the code is rather complex.
I marked the current r65311 and r65312 to be merged for 2.2. I am quite confident the feature works now with its slightly illogical way. It is much better than a single line selection. The menu text "Copy Selected Messages to Clipboard" is not an empty promise any more.
||But it is working, if you use "Copy All Shown Messages to ClipBoard". Maybe you find there a approach?!|
In r65318 I fixed the header line selection. Please test.
Now -1 as a line index is allowed in the selection list. The index number system did not need to change.
I believe that selection between groups is possible but it requires more pondering and refactoring. I leave this issue open but I don't promise to implement it soon.
||Many thanks! It works now as expected. I would say this bug can be closed when a new enhancement report is opened for the remaining selection between groups.|
I resolve this as "suspended" because I don't plan to work on the issue soon.
