For the Mks pplugin, collecting the changes may take a noticeable time, so I'd like to provide a visual feedback about the progress of the operation, but there is no need to display a modal dialog.
I've currently implemented it using
JLabel statusLabel = new JLabel();
and then changing the label text.
This works, but the status bar belongs to the main IDEA window, I was wondering if it was possible to put some feedback text in the changes view itself.
More precisely, on the attached screenshot my status is "collecting change packages" and displayed next to the memory status. I'd like it to go after the "Updating: MKS". Is this possible ?
