When you run a program that has user input and you close the console output window the IDE tray shows that it is still
running. I think that either closing the window should terminate the running process, or have a way to reopen the
window like through the Window|Output menu item.
Product Version: NetBeans IDE 6.5 RC1 (Build 20081020152705)
Java: 1.5.0_16; Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM 1.5.0_16-133
System: Mac OS X version 10.5.5 running on i386; MacRoman; en_US (nb)
-Create a new python project
-Add some kind of code to get user input:
age = input('How old are you?')
print 'And this is your age: ', age
-Run the file
-Close the Console Output window, IDE tray still shows running and there is no way to get the window back
-close the tray message and confirm to actually end
Actually this is the same behavior for all of netbeans. Java application and has same behavior. Marking as an
enhancement and changing Component value.
If you want to stop the process, use the Stop button or Run > Stop, at least for Ant and Maven builds. In the case of Ant, you can reopen the Output Window tab by clicking on the IDE's progress handle for the build. Perhaps Python execution does not implement the same.
[Note that the Version field for this component does not have 6.5 or 6.7 entries.]
Not sure it is still relevant with the current version. Closing this as old bug. If this is still a thing, please reopen and accept my apologies.
Thanks for your evaluation Julien. Reporter, if you think your issue is still valid and needs to be addressed, don't hesitate to reopen it with additional information. Closing for now.
