Configuring inline problem markers to not display on errors [message #1819554] Fri, 17 January 2020 09:32 Go to next message

Eclipse 4.14 added support to show problem markers inline in text editors ( mentioned in News & Noteworthy).

I tried them out for a bit and found that I'd really like to have them for warnings, e.g. when I'm cleaning up code.

However, the problem markers are also displayed for errors and this don't seem to play well with the incremental compilation and my development. Generally, errors are displayed while I'm still not finished with the part I'm working on. This is fine for markers on the side or in the problem view but with inline markers, it is very annoying for me.

Is there a way to get problem markers inline for warnings only? The options in the GUI don't support "warnings but no errors". I also tried to find a way to switch between "activate inline problem markers" and "deactivate inline markers" but I didn't find a matching hotkey in the keys view.

Is error/warning really the best possible distinction here?

What about this:
[x] don't show inline problem markers if code has syntax errors

Wouldn't that be closer to the intention of saying: don't distract me with markers of code that I know is still incomplete?
