Description Alan McGovern 2011-09-25 18:39:40 UTC
When refactoring code I typically can have a couple of dozen compile errors in a class. I usually fix a few of these and then hit 'compile' to ensure everything I just modified compiles as expected. MonoDevelop keeps automatically switching to a different file, the file where the first compile error was found. This is really annoying as I constantly end up having to switch back to the file I was originally working on.

Can this behaviour be removed, or alternatively can it be enhanced so that it does not jump away from a file if the file I already have open has compile errors in it?

Personally, I'd much prefer if it never jumped away from the file I'm currently editing as even if what I just wrote compiles perfectly, I may still want to make more changes.

It can be turned off - miguel choosed that as default during the introduction of message bubbles.
It can be turned off on the same page as the error bubbles therefore :)

I like that feature btw.
