File Rename Not Reflected In Project Explorer


#1

The context menu (rght-click) in the Project Explorer has a ‘Rename’ option. If this is used to rename a file, the Project Explorer display doesn’t update - you have to manually refresh it.

Edit:

Actually, if you’re renaming a number of files, it does update at some point - which gets rather confusing, as you never know quite where you are…


#2

Eclipse’s stuff…
Seems to be random, since it is usually refreshed correctly (but it’s true that sometimes not…)

I’m getting a bit sick of this excuse. If I buy a car from Ford, and the tyres keep failing, I don’t expect them to say to me “that’s a known problem with Michelin tyres”, I expect them to fix it. I don’t care if they make Michelin fix the problem, or they start buying tyres from Dunlop, I just want the problem solved.

Additionally, Sierra Wireless has a 3rd option, which Ford does not. Eclipse is open source, so the M2M studio developers are free to fix things themselves.


#4

One point for you :wink:

I didn’t want to discard the issue: generally speaking we’re doing our best to resolve such cases by implementing a workaround, or pushing hard on Eclipse side to get a fix if it’s not possible.

In this particular case, the behavior is so random that even on our side it will be hard to reproduce (and then to find a fix, or a workaround, or to explain to Eclipse guys also how to reproduce it)
