History panel in main window¶
With version 2017.4.0, the BcdaMenu was transformed from a button window style to a main window style of application. This change gained several features:
- keyboard motion between the various menus and menu items
- a status line to report program information (like the unimenu predecessor of BcdaMenu)
- a main window panel to gather any command output and show history
The history panel (like real history) cannot be changed after it has been written. Both stderr and stdout from any command are combined and reported in the window. There are options (under the Help menu) to control what is written to the history.
Since the original program did not have a history panel, the default is to not display the history panel. Again, the Help menu has an item to show/hide the history.
