Hi

I use CCTray for monitoring the Cruise Control server on another computer. When I open the Status window for a project, i would like to have a description on the tasks - and if possible also a more descriptive name than just MsBuildTask or BuildPublisher.

Thanks in advance

Hi

every task has a "description' property in the config

you can check all the tasks at http://www.cruisecontrolnet.org/projects/ccnet/wiki/Tasks_and_Publishers

if you fill in that property in the config, that description should be shown.

with kind regards

Hi

I already tried that and restarted the Cruise Control server. But I did not get any change in the CCTray locally.

Is there a required order of elements in the config file?

Hi

no, the order should not be of importance.
are you running CCNEt 1.8.5?

Hi


that could be the case,
I do not know by head in what version that visualization was added


with kind regards

Hi,

OK. I'll try to upgrade the server and tray locally when I get the time for it...

Thank you

Hi

My server was already running 1.8.5, and I have now upgraded my CCTray locally to 1.8.5. I still do not see the descriptions in CCTray.

HI

I'll have to look in the code,
I thought it was enabled

Hi

Turned out that I modified the wrong config file (blush)...

I do get the description returned to CCTray status window in the right side when selecting an item in the TreeView. However, is there a way to change the text that is added to the TreeView?

HI

not without changing the code, the description was meant as a tooltip, not as replacement for the task itself.
that could  also take a lot of screen real estate :-)

unless the would be a 'short' description introduced
