Description John Baker 2007-06-06 02:36:09 UTC
If a method overloads the base method and this method has an error
such as, missing the return statement then the red squiggly lines appears.

However, no syntax error marker (red x) in the left column because
the overloaded marker covers it.
Comment 1 Vitezslav Stejskal 2007-06-08 04:41:06 UTC
Yeah, to be presice it depends on what annotation is added last. I know it's not
very convenient, but there should be a black arrow indicating that there are
more annotations on the line and if you click it it should cycle through all of

Maybe we should establish some sort of priorities on what annotations should be
shown more prominently then others. Showing errors is more important than
showing wanings, which is more important than showing for example a bookmark.

Comment 4 tfrysinger 2007-08-20 14:31:41 UTC
If all methods that can be a subject of an @override (or other similar type hint) are going to show in the gutter, there
needs to be a way to remediate *all* such hints with a single action. Having to go one-by-one through 30 methods to
click on the hint and accept the action to add '@override', for example, is extremenly tedious. You should be able to
select one such hint and then indicate to NB that it should accept the hint behavior for *all* such similarly hinted
methods in the file.

Agreed, CCing jlahoda, who may be able to help with this.
Comment 6 Petr Hejl 2007-10-03 09:45:47 UTC
I think this is quite important issue. What I observed is that you don't see the current line you debug if the line
contains another annotation (and that annotation was added last).

This behaviour is very confusing.

Target milestone is still 6.0. Could someone please update this?
Comment 8 Max Sauer 2008-03-18 09:41:21 UTC
Setting TM to future, we won't probably implement priorities for 6.1.
