Code generation: Auto Generate Files
« on: August 05, 2007, 04:05:08 pm »
Hey all,

The "Auto Generate Files" feature in the "Generate Source Code" dialog is a bit blunt for my taste.
I'd like to see something more like a reverse of the "Package Structure" section of the "Import Source Directory" dialog.

In other words, I'd like to be able to specify whether namespaces, packages and individual classes should generate files or directories.

The Java case would be directory per package, file per class. C++ could be directory per namespace, file per (non-namespace root) package. Etc. Am I making sense?

My theories are always correct, just apply them to the right reality.

Yes, Uffe I think you are making sense.

IMHO (as well) some options for control in these areas would improve the product.

No, you can't have it!
