Filter the files for TODO

Is there anyway to filter the files that the TODO module checks for.

We sadly have a 3rd party source generation tool that puts todo's in the generated code.

I'd like to exclude these from showing up.

Thanks

Hi Graham,

AFAIK, you can only define filters for the TODO expressions themselve. That helps if that generated TODOs differ from your 'normal TODOs'.

Can you do exclusion filters ?

Only via regexp itself.

I assume all the filters are additive ?

Multiple patterns within a single filter are additive.

I'm really wondering that TODOs cannot be viewed per Scope.
Is there a feature request for this?
If not, someone should add one.
That would exactly be what you need.

You could also exclude those files from the Module to remove them from the TODO list, but I guess you need them non-excluded.

Here you are: http://youtrack.jetbrains.net/issue/IDEA-72326
Vote for it and the possibility that it will get implemented raises. :-)
