Are there no decorators yet?

Asked by Sharebear on 2007-07-24

I've just tried out the bazaar plugin for eclipse 0.0.10 and am surprised to see that there are no file decorators yet. Is this on the roadmap yet, or are you just concentrating on the basics?

The reason I ask is that at the end of my session today I realised that I had missed several files from my commits because I had forgotten to add them. This doesn't happen with subclipse as I have the file tree decorators making it instantly obvious which resources are, or aren't version controlled.

A first implementation exists (but it's performance is *really* bad)
To activate it go to Window --> Preferences --> General --> Appearance --> Label Decorators, and Bazaar option should be there (I hope ;-))

Interesting, admittedly the performance is bad but not unacceptable for now. My problems are...

1) No decorators on directories
2) Missing the last user and revision of edit (see subclipse for example)
3) Icons do not update on save (showstopper for me) or on refresh of project, the only way to trigger an update is to perform a bazaar action or click on another file in the same directory in the Package explorer (Note: the directory isn't enough, I must click on an artifact at the same directory level).

3 makes it difficult to see what files I need to consider committing and makes it difficult to use for now. Combined with the mylyn functionality this could easily lead to files being missed or unintentionally committed if I don't pay close attention to the file list in the commit dialog

I just created a bug related to this question
I really appreciate your comments.
I'll try to implement this as soon as possible

I want to second the request for updating decorators on save or refresh ASAP.

Guillermo Gonzalez (verterok) said : #5

Andrew,
   Thanks for the comments.
   The update decorators on save is already implemented, if you find it's not working right please reopen Bug #128423.
   In the case of update on refresh, I'm looking how to hook the decorators update to that event.

Cheers
