Eclipse Color Decorators Rock!

Want to see which resources are ignored in your workspace? Use Eclipse color decorators! Here’s how:

  1. Window –> Preferences

  2. Team –> Label Decorations

  3. Check the Enable font and color decorations box

  4. Click the hyperlink Colors and Fonts

  5. Open the category CVS

  6. You can now change the color and font for outgoing changes and ignored resources

I set the ignored resources foreground color to light gray and the outgoing changes font to bold – now I can see what is going on regarding CVS activity. Great!
