Re: [platform-debug-dev] contextual launch question

Yeah, it does. This has bugged me for a long time.

Having said that, I'm not a big fan of contextual launch anyway. I prefer other IDEs' approach of having an Active Project that determines the context. It gives users much more control over what the launch will be without flipping around as you switch from editor to editor, especially if the editor is for a library project file.

This is a question about the contextual launcher.


When I select a source editor and click the “debug” toolbar button a correct debug session is created based on my source editor.

When my source editor is the active editor but the active workbench part is the Console View, selecting the “Debug” toolbar button popup a dialog saying: “The selection cannot be launched, and there are no recent launches.”.

I was expecting the debug session to start based on my top most source editor.


I understand that any view can provide a structured selection and the different launch providers will consider that selection to create launches.

But if the current active part does not provide a structured selection, does it makes sense to remember the most recently activated part, that does have a structured selection and ask the launch providers to create launches based on that part and its most recent selection?
