Mark non-existent files in the project tree

If a file is listed in a project, but it is doesn't exist anymore on the filesystem, CVI doesn't mark it in any way in the project tree.

If the file is an .uir, this brings to a strange behavior with "Find UI object" (see here).

I think that files non-existent on the filesystem should be marked mark in some way (color, special icon, ...) in the project tree.

The check can be done when the user opens and closes the project.

There's a work-around: the Date/Time and Size columns show "not Available" for missing files.

CVI-User... we were talking about the Project Tree of CVI (menu View / Project Tree) - at least for me (CVI 2017) this tree only shows the file name, no attributes...

On startup CVI will complain that a file is missing and all its tags and breakpoints have been removed, but it still will list the file name

No more View >> Columns >> Date/Time and Size in CVI 2017?

 

Off topic: Would you do me a favor and try to save the samples\userint\activex\WebBrowser.uir as a TUI in CVI2017? The demo version crashes on my machine when I do this.

View >> Columns >> Date/Time and Size are available in CVI2017 too, but I don't leave them visible (to save space on my screen).
