Description jamespb 2008-06-04 16:26:47 UTC
Test names are usually very long - you need to put a pass/fail indicator to the left of the test name so you can see it
without scrolling horizontally.

How about just changing the color of the dots next to the tests?  Green/red instead of making them all orange.
Comment 1 Erno Mononen 2008-06-04 16:50:24 UTC
That's a good idea indeed, I'll change the color of the dots.
Comment 2 jamespb 2008-06-24 17:17:27 UTC
Any chance of this making the current release?
Comment 3 Erno Mononen 2008-06-24 17:48:07 UTC
For 6.5 M2, definitely. I didn't get the icon right with some tinkering in Gimp after a brief attempt at this (I'm 
pretty bad in image editing as you guess), will ask someone from the HIE team to do that.
Comment 4 Erno Mononen 2008-06-27 12:22:57 UTC
Done, changeset 3f9c90be583a. The HIE guy I spoke to recommended using the same error badge that is already used 
elsewhere in the IDE for indicating failures.

Integrated into 'main-golden', available in NB_Trunk_Production #285 build

Passed tests and failed tests still both show red dots.  The failed test red dot is slightly different than the passed
red dot (fails get an extra exclamation point), but passes still have a red dot.
Comment 7 Erno Mononen 2008-07-16 09:59:50 UTC
I think that is how it was meant, the exclamation mark indicates a failure. Can you attach a screenshot here just in 
Comment 8 jamespb 2008-07-16 18:54:15 UTC
Created attachment 64741 [details]

Comment 9 jamespb 2008-07-16 18:56:21 UTC
Sorry I wasn't clear - there's nothing wrong with the failure indicator.  The passing indicator is still a red dot,
though - that seems wrong.  The dots next to passing tests should be green.
Comment 10 Erno Mononen 2009-01-15 15:27:02 UTC
I've changed the icons to completely new ones in changeset 010fd2b97796, will push tomorrow. They should make it more 
obvious whats tests failed and what passed.
