Show File Status: When is it updated?
« on: July 15, 2022, 09:26:03 pm »
Tools > Options > Version Control > Version Control Providers > Git: Show File Status

When does Slickedit update its start WRT files being modified (according to git)?

There's a time there for how often to get the information from Git.  Also, saving a file gets the status almost immediately.

It does update on save (and when Slickedit is started).

#1: It does not update:
    On save-all
    On automatically reload when modified externally.
    On a timer.

My setting for: Tools > Options > Version Control > Version Control Providers > Git: GetUpdatesFromGitEvery(M) was 1. I tried changing it to 2, but still no updates.

#2: Files that are staged (git add), do not have an icon, only unstaged.

#3: "git global options" has a "..." to open a file browser. This should just be an edit box though, right? For git cmdline options.

#4: In "help", it only mentions Perforce
Show status on file icons - When set to On, dialogs that display file icons in the tree will show the file's Perforce status.
