When Debugging the output window take focus
« on: April 02, 2008, 03:06:13 pm »
When running c++ code in debug mode, the output window now gets focus by default. All my output is in the Build window. Is there a way I can turn that feature off? I have not found the option if there is.

Thanks

I have just started using the built-in debugging to walk through some Perl scripts, as I'm mostly a Windows C++ dev using Visual Studio, so I use VS for debugging.  While I'm thrilled that the debugger works (very well!), I was a bit surprised that the script output wasn't in, well, Output, but in Build.  Is that by design?  What is the Output window for then?
