Progress

I just wanted to say that I like the way ReSharper shows the progress bar
on the lower right side in build #219. Very nice... :)

Hello Michael,

you just confirm the proverb - tastes differ, really :)

I want to make a distinction here, on my earlier comments on this display:

1) It's really great that ReSharper shows the progress. Very nice.

2) The form of the display is a little weird, with the way it over-writes
the text window, scrollbar, and status line.

It's not the function, it's the form, that can use some improvement. The
function is WONDERFUL ;)

Hello Paul,

I guess that Michael meant the form, not only the function.

Both form and function are nice. I think all the form needs is somekind of alpha blended background or something, so that it makes things a little clearer. Ive attached a screen shot of what mine looks like.

Here's my opinion on the form:

Either:

1) It should fit into a status line or something that doesn't draw over
other controls ... the first time I saw it I thought it was a graphical
glitch and appearing in the wrong place.

or

2) It should be a modeless window, with border and translucent background
that can be moved around or even closed (or possibly even docked, and
remembering it's position).

What's there is certainly better than nothing, but I hope the form is
refined in the future to something a little more intuitive and standard.

I vote for a toolwindow too. The present progress looks extremely ugly.

Not a toolwindow, just a semi-transparent draggable window.

Hello Andrey,

I don't know if it was me initially, who asked for progress display, but
I did it in tracker and meant slightly different thing.
To the left of the "Ln nn Col nn" part of status bar there is place for animated
icon. It is displayed during build and some other operations. I mean just
animated icon to be displayed there during background analysis - either initial
or later when something requires it. If tooltip can be placed over it - it
would be nice to show something like "15% of solution has been analysed".
Or maybe animated icon itself can show progress somehow, like filling 4 quarters
as progress go.

Sincerely,
Ilya Ryzhenkov

Hello Sergey,

SC> Not a toolwindow, just a semi-transparent draggable window.

Why make things so complex?
http://www.intellij.net/tracker/resharper/viewSCR?publicId=17993

I don't see any advantage of "progress window" over simple icon in status
bar, distinguishable from VS-like icons. Who cares about file being analysed?
You can't change the order analysis is done in, you can't improve the time,
you don't report any errors and/or warnings in this process. Personally,
I care only about the fact if analysis has been finished or not.

Sincerely,
Ilya Ryzhenkov

The problem with a draggable window (whether semitransparent or not) is that
it tends to interfere with graphics of other windows in the environment.
For example, for me progress appears over the solution explorer and I cannot
read the processed assembly names because they are written over the file
names shown in the explorer. I doubt that a draggable window will feel drastically
less clumsy than the present one.
On the other hand, toolwindows can be docked, have Auto Hide feature, and
fit into the Visual Studio style.

Not a toolwindow, just a semi-transparent draggable window.

Thanks,
Andrey Simanovsky

The information about the file being analyzed could be useful to notice
the files that are being analyzed for too long.

Hello Deivis,

this is true in general, but actually there is a direct correlation between
the size of the file being analysed and
the time needed to analyse it, so it's not difficult to predict what files
are analysed for a long time. However,
there is another use of this information: if an exception or another problem
happens during analysis, it is possible to say what file
has caused it.
