Messages View success state?
« on: April 04, 2018, 03:38:57 pm »
I'v written some IDE extension packages that use the Messages window to display status messages, grouped into their own views.

Right now, all custom views I use are simple text color on yellow background.

The standard "view" (Compile Project) runs with yellow background, but switches to green once successful.

This I would love to be able to do as well.

Right now, I use AddIDEMessage from IDEMsgIntf.pas with the last parameter ViewCaption set to specify my own views.

I know I can use IDEMessagesWindow.GetView(AViewName, true) to get a view instance, but how would I proceed to tell this view it's finished?
