RE: [cdt-dev] Suggested change to String option command generation.

I agree with respect to the round-tripping.  It would be nice, but isn’t what I would call essential.  Certainly not the kind of thing we should be focusing on right now when there are so many more important things to do.


I could start taking a look at the summary page stuff part time if you want to get me started.  It would be nice to start getting TI involved in contributing more actively.

Minus the round-trip part, I wanted to provide a summary page that would aggregate all the option settings together and display it to the user back in 1.2. There is even a skeletal "summary" option page ready to go. The problem of updating the summary page in response to UI events was a bit more complex than I had time to deal with back then. The complexity is still there, but I haven't thought about it in a while and it might not be all that bad with enough time to do the job right. If you guys at TI are interested in doing this, let me know and maybe I can point you in the right direction.

I can state with certainty that round-tripping is going to be virtually impossible given the current architecture.

Regarding round-trip editing and Visual Studio.  Visual C++ used to support that, but hasn't since Visual Studio .NET.  I don't know if they gave it up because they didn't think it was used by many people, or because it was "too hard".  Visual C++ still does display the entire command line and has an edit box for "Additional Options".

This is a great idea, especially the round-trip editing which is very
nice to have.  I believe MS Visual Studio does this as well...
