I think this is a bug.
Yes, some would say - well, you shouldnt be allowed to perform these operations when a build is in progress.
But I disagree for the following reasons:

1. Files that dont effect the build should be changeable.
2. The behavior that queues up pending requests is an engineer's solution - but not a useable one. I want to do it now. If you dont agree, disable it or tell me what my options are now.
3. I would at least like to get a warning before my command get's queued up.

4. Most important: Allow me to do what I want. If you like, remember that I changed something that might effect the build, and warn me when the build is done - or offer to rebuild.

The overall behavior of the IDE from my point of view is an entirely single tasked application.

Am I missing something?

Thanks

David

This was fixed for unmanaged build. For managed it is still an issue.

Hi Andrew,

Is there somewhere I can read the plan for fixing this?
Is there anyway I can influence the prioritization.

Wouldnt you agree that a single tasked application for building C++ projects is unusable?

Thanks

David

It's just that it is not easy to do but the work is being done gradually. You can take a look at https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=311205 and all the subtasks. To express that this is important you can vote on the task and provide your perspective in comments.
