Version control file status icons question
« on: September 13, 2021, 08:28:30 pm »
Hi

Under options/version control/version control providers/git I have the "show file status on icons" option set to "on" under the "show file status" section.

Where am I supposed to be able to see the status?  My projects/workspace were imported from maven POM files and the files shown in the tree in the Projects tool window all just have plain text icons.  I expected to see the version control status on those icons.  The icons in the Files tool window in the Buffers tab also don't show the VCS status.

Where should I be looking to find the VCS status please?

SE 25.0.2.0 / 26.0.0.3 on Windows 10.

Hi Dan
Thanks for looking into this.  I've just opened a C/C++ Workspace that was imported from a Visual Studio 2019 solution and it doesn't show the VCS status either, so it's not just Maven/Java.

It should work there.  I just tested it in an install from yesterday.  Can you PM me an email address and I'll send you a DLL with some debug in it?

Hi
I installed the 26.0.0.6 release and I still don't see VCS status on the project view icons in either Windows or Linux.
Is there anything I can provide to help you find the cause?

Hi Dan, did I miss something or have you just been busy?

I haven't had a chance to get to this yet, but I'll send something this week.
