Compiler messages.
« on: November 30, 2018, 11:18:48 pm »
The green successful message has gone. The messages window is there, but the compiled message only shows if I introduce an error. The green message stays for the next successful compile, but goes away for future compiles. I like the green message to be there all the time. I have tried the filter options, but without success.

See below for version info.

I don't know if this is the cause but you're using a (by now) rather old version. In version 1.8.4 the green message stays there until it stops making sense, p.e. when compiling again, when opening another project, etc.

At least that's how it works in my (Linux) installation.

Thanks for the tip. I'll update Lazarus in the future, but the green message always used to be there.

So in order to understand what went wrong it is best not to update. Besides an update may carry across current settings and not solve the problem.

Prior to the missing message I was copying all messages to the clipboard, and clicking on a few options. So somewhere somehow I stopped the green message.

Absolutely no. There are some many great features coming which you are missing just because of that dummy message!

I see the green successful compilation message also in Lazarus trunk. Be assured that it was not removed. There's probably some option buried between the many settings which turns this line off.

Find out where your user profile is stored: "View" > "IDE Internals" > "Global IDE options" - the line "Primary config directory" tells you the corresponding folder.  Then make a backup copy of this folder, just in case something goes wrong with the next tests. Always exit Lazarus before each test. At first rename the entire folder so that the IDE does not find it any more. The next time you start Lazarus the profile will be recreated with default parameters. Recompile some simple project (all your installed components will not be found now) and see if the green line appears. If not - I am wrong and the error is somewhere else. But if yes you know that the bug is somewhere in the profile.

Now you have two options: either keep the new profile, install all your components again and restore your settings. Or do the same trick with the inidividual files in the folder - i.e. rename one file by one to have the IDE replace it by a default file and see whether the green line is back. If it does not delete the newly created file and restore the old one, then proceed with the next file.
