Back in May is posted about the stupid error message and problem that occurs when you load a version control project with missing files. I am happy to report that it’s much better now. The IDE will ask for the missing file and if you click cancel it will load as much of the project as possible. Before it would just stop loading the project and you’d get a mysterious File Error 0 message. Now you get this error message:
This is great but in one project due to file corruption issues I clicked cancel over 25+ times. So at this point this dialog isn’t exceptionally helpful because it tells me something bad has happened it just doesn’t give me a clue as to which ones were bad unless I happened to write every one of them down at the time the dialog was shown.
What would be more helpful is having a log file of missing files generated or list the files in System.DebugLog. Either way it would more helpful. Ideally I’d love to have the option to have it stop asking for the missing files and just create the log file but I understand that the IDE might have to undergo some significant changes to allow that.
And before anyone says it, of course it’s my fault, if the files weren’t corrupt/missing to begin with I wouldn’t have this issue. Stuff happens – get over it. Regardless, this one improvement will make my life a little saner.
Is there one fix/new feature that is really good news or bad news for you? What do you think of the EditField deprecation and subsequent replacement with TextField and TextArea controls?
