List of choice for execution arguments

Post by Yaakuro » Thu Feb 15, 2018 7:32 pm

Hi Eranif,

not sure if this feature would make sense for some people. Sometimes I find myself in the situation where I like to pass different arguments when debugging or executing the program. Would it make sense to add some sort of option for multiple run configuration for the execution arguments? The choice could be selectable in the Workspace View. Other than that the only right now (maybe there is another way?) would be to create another configuration with different arguments. This way would lead to too many configurations. Not sure if this feature is useless or an overkill or something.

Hi,
I assume that you mean:
In project settings->general tab
the fields:
"Program Arguments" and "Debug program arguments"
It actually makes a lot of sense to make it a drop down selection
Can you please open a feature request on GitHub?

Make sure you have read the HOW TO POST thread

Yes exactly. Ok, I will make a feature request. Would be nice if that drop down selection is directly in the workspace view or somewhere in the toolbar selectable.
