Re: [cdt-dev] Make Targets UI change

Good question :).

There will be a Build Targets node under every IContainer and ICContainer that has IMakeTargets.

This is what drove me mad with the QNX BSP projects. It’s a tree of libraries and executables and I needed to add targets deep in the folder hierarchy and hated having to go to the Make Target view to expand the tree when I had already done that with the Project Explorer to edit my file.

How does it look when you want a target in a subfolder? I assume it would it be under the "Build Targets" node, under a folder? Just making sure you thought about this use case :)

Hey gang,

I’ve been doing some work on a QNX BSP which uses Make Targets. I eventually got really annoyed that they are in a separate view and not in the Project Explorer.

So, as it turns out, the Common Navigator Framework makes this pretty easy and I’d like to contribute it in 9.1. As part of this, I plan on removing the Make Target View from the CPerspective default layout. I won’t delete the View in case someone really wants it. But once you see Build Targets (I renamed them too since they aren’t really tied to Make), you won’t want to go back :).

Let me know if you have concerns. Here’s a sneak peek. Still some workflow issues to work out before I commit it. Should be done by end of day or tomorrow.
