Is it possible to decorate change lists ?

some VCS have the same concept of "change lists" already present (MKS calls them change packages) and i'm trying to present those in the change lists view.

But I feel it would be best to have a visual tip indicating a given list is not "local only" but VCS managed.

I've been using a given prefix in the list name up to now, but it doesn't fit well with the "rename" featuren.
Is there a recommended way to do it ? like specifying a color/icon/etc ...

Hello Thibaut,

some VCS have the same concept of "change lists" already present (MKS
calls them change packages) and i'm trying to present those in the
change lists view.

But I feel it would be best to have a visual tip indicating a given
list is not "local only" but VCS managed.

I've been using a given prefix in the list name up to now, but it
doesn't fit well with the "rename" featuren. Is there a recommended
way to do it ? like specifying a color/icon/etc ...


See the ChangeListDecorator interface and its implementation in the Perforce
plugin as an example.
