Small feature that will be useful

Post by jenka1980 » Thu 15 Jul 2010 15:04

It'll be useful if you add command line parameter that will make CodeCompare pop up message box instead of open a compare window in case of identical files.

like it's done in WinMerge:

"/x closes WinMerge (after displaying an information dialog) when you start a comparison of identical files. The parameter has no effect after the comparison, for example if the files become identical as a result of merging or editing. This parameter is useful when you use WinMerge as an external compare application, or when you want to eliminate unnecessary steps by ignoring files that don't have any differences. "

Thank you for your suggestion. We will consider this approach in the future builds.

Another suggesstions if not already possible:
- an option to set more decent color for the dirrerence borders, e.g light gray, or to swith it off. I think the background highlighting is (almost) enougth.
- open compare window in fullscreen mode
- scroll both parts synchronously, may be by click on the difference adornment.
