Hide report after opening an external tool

Post by stdu » Tue Dec 10, 2013 5:12 pm


we're using the button "External tools" for opening a website in a browser from Oxygen. By clicking the button Oxygen displays in the bottom of the window a report like this:

Started: "C:\Programme\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe" [...]
Process ended with exit code: 1

All functions, but I would like to hide this little report because the users have always to close this part of the program. Is it possible to deactivate this report?

Unfortunately it's not possible to deactivate the output log of the external tool. It was assumed that the external tool would always provide some information in the standard output.

Note that if you want to open in the browser the current document, there's already an action available Document > File > Open in Browser/System Application (also available in the toolbar).
There's a similar option available for the end of a transformation scenario (in the Output section of the Edit scenario dialog).
