Debug window font

Postby Allanon » Fri Mar 02, 2012 5:21 pm

Hi Andreas,
it could be possible to add an option to let the user chose the debug window font?
I asking this because if I could set a non-proportional font the debug output could be easily readable, I'have a a library that help me output messages keeping the structure of the function calls, so nested functions will have be represented like:
Code: Select all
+-message from func1
|--> I'm inside func1, now calling func2
+----- message from func2, now calling func 3
+----- message from func3
|----> I'm inside func2
|message after returnig from func1


With a proportional font it's a mess... :)

Debug Output goes to standard Output. So you probably have to configure it on the OS side. On MorphOS this can be done in MUI-Settings->PowerTerm. On Windows I'd guess its in the settings for shell windows.

...mmm, I don't think so because if I invoke Hollywood without using the IDE it opens a console window with the monospaced font (configured by me) while the IDE debug window I think that "catch" the debug output directly from Hollywood.

I think I can add an option for this in the future. Until then, you could try to play with tabs to achieve a nested look, e.g.

Code: Select all
DebugPrint("File 1:\tTest.jpg\nFile 2:\tTest2.jpg\nFile 3:\tbla.iff")

Console font is now user-configurable in the IDE.
