good bug in tags

Post by JackR » Wed Dec 23, 2009 5:20 pm

Hi Jussi,

I found a bug in the tags rebuilding which I like but hopefully there isn't some bad side effect. Rebuilding the tags is periodically required and takes over 5 minutes on one of my projects. I have found is I can start the rebuild, then switch to a different open program ( alt-tab) and then back, the tags continue to rebuild in the background but I can use the editor. I haven't tried using any tag feature during the remaining rebuild time.

Hopefully, it can be left this way. If there is a problem with just using tab features, maybe they can be disabled during the rebuilding and I can continue editing.

This feature was added to stop the appearance of a hung editor whenever a large tags database was rebuilt ;)

While this feature has not been extensively tested, I wouldn't expect the background build to effect the editor in any adverse way.

The tag database is locked while the build is in process so any action that tries to access the database during the build will just report a database locking error.

If you find any issues just post a bug report ;)

Cheers Jussi
