Arrow icon in the Java editor [message #215744] Thu, 14 June 2007 14:37 Go to next message

Sometimes it obscures a breakpoint marker, for example. Could someone tell

in the help).

Any info appreciated.

TIA

Greg,

You mean the "yield sign" marker that indicates a warning in the Java
code? If you hover over it, it will tell you what it's for...

Sounds like an instruction pointer. I.d. you have a debug process
running, and the arrow indicates where in the code you are. If the
process stops at a breakpoint, then it might be over the breakpoint
symbol. Hovering over the symbol will show you all markers in the margin.

If you open Help Contents and search for "icons" it returns several
pages that describe the various groups of icons. The one you're talking
about might be there. If you can't find it, post a small image of it and
I'm sure someone can identify it for you.

Hope this helps,
Eric

Hi, Greg,

I think it's probably a search result indicator. If you do a multifile
search, or a Find References, it gives you the list of results in the
Search pane and it also puts a yellow arrow in the margin beside each
found occurrence. It's easy to forget that you have an active search and
so those arrows can seem to appear out of nowhere. To dismiss them, just
close the Search pane.

Peace,
--Carl

Thanks much. In searching previously, I made the stupid error of forgetting
to change the scope to 'All', but now I see that you are right.

The yellow arrow is indeed the search results icon.

Plausible, but turns out to be the search results marker.

Thanks for the suggestion.

As it happens, the arrow is the search results pointer.

But I've run into the debug indicator as well. Thanks for the suggestion.

And what is the end result ? Is it any way to get rid of these yellow "search markers" results ?

Search markers remain as long as there are search result entries in the Search View tab. Closing this tab or removing search item(s) from this view will remove the corresponding search marker(s).
