Git commit - discard changes...

So this doesn't discard the changes you are viewing,... That one file... But all the changes made since the last commit...

Sob!

Such a drastic act needs to be less easy to do...

To explain why I find automatic selection annoying: my git workflow often consists of making a bunch of not-necessarily-related changes, followed by a series of commits to record the changes. With regular git (and add -p), this allows me to stay in the coding zone without having to stop to deal with version control. It's not quite as good in AIDE, where you can't commit a partial file, but I've found it works well enough. With this workflow, automatic selection of all changed files is precisely the opposite of what I want.

The Spoof of #UKP That Backfired. "Migrants create our jobs" (oops no, most don't).
I love it when people do try to present the case for the EU. They deliver all the data required to rip their case to shreds... UKIP have a new poster campaign out - the usual anti-UKIP suspects have repeated their usual old, stale, incorrect, anti-UKIP cr...

That would be why there are no religious folk around now - eh?

Thanks - that has fixed that issue - on to the next! regards.
 
Getting up and running on chrome - stuck on 'custom apps'.

I have everything working fine for a styled player (with background images pulled from googledrive) - but a custom player hosted on google drive gets as far as giving a blank, black screen on the TV before timing out and switching back to the default/standard chromecast display.

Pointing the app to a non existant https link gives a '404' on the chrome cast - so I am sure it is getting as far as trying to fetch the app-page, but either failing to get it, or failing to display it...

I have replaced my page with a totally minimal page I found online, this does exactly the same - blank for a while then back to the default display.

What to try? Any ideas?

Hi - thanks - just found control-click bypasses the nasty previewer too.

Not sure when it started going wrong (maybe a recent update). But

1)
Find in file isn't working well - especially from a keyboard.

<ctrl>f
type search text<enter>

Now each <enter> will take you to the next match (and select the text), but how are you supposed to return to 'edit' mode?

<esc> first lets you edit the text in the search box, next it closes the search box, leaving the text selected and no edit control (i.e. arrow keys dont work etc).

What is supposed to happen here? I have got to the text I was searching for, and want to amend the line of code... what is the supposed key sequence?

2)
Also, every now and then AIDE forgets that I have paid... and refuses to save my code - this is worst when I am relying on it autosaving for a run. The code is not saved, the app is compiled with out the changes and the old version runs.... leaving my wondering why my changes don't seem to have done anything!!

+Trebor Rude If the auto-save setting is enabled files are saved after some idle time and also each time you switch away from AIDEs editor.

Ok - the interface for adding libraries seems broken.

But manually updating the project.properties seems to have sorted that out... no local JAR's, but linked to projects for each library - and those library projects have no local jars, but are linked to the other projects as required. (So except for android support everything is compiled locally!).

Except for one remaining error(!).

(MediaRouteActionProvider) MenuItemCompat.getActionProvider(mediaRouteMenuItem)

An instance of v4 action provider cannot be of type v7 mediaactionprovider. It knows the 'types' and they one extends the other... so what could be causing this??

Fixed - if anyone is interested, a library project cant reference another library project. So had to put some JAR's back in library projects - finally got a clean build!
