View inspections and annotations in VCS diff view?

Hi all,

We're getting much stricter in our company now on code reviews, so I'm doing a lot more of them. We're mostly using Crucible, but I tend to use the diff view in IntelliJ to actually do the review since it's easier to work with. But one thing I've noticed is that in the VCS diff view the inspections and annotations (for example, the icon showing that a method implements or overrides another) are not shown. Is it possible to enable this? I'm using 7.0.3, BTW.

Thanks,
Colin

Hello Colin,

We're getting much stricter in our company now on code reviews, so I'm
doing a lot more of them. We're mostly using Crucible, but I tend to
use the diff view in IntelliJ to actually do the review since it's
easier to work with. But one thing I've noticed is that in the VCS
diff view the inspections and annotations (for example, the icon
showing that a method implements or overrides another) are not shown.

The icons should be shown in the pane which shows the actual current version
of the file. It's not possible to enable the icons on other file versions
because they aren't part of the project and IDEA cannot perform code analysis
on them.

Hi Dmitry,

Ok, thanks. The problem is that by the time I'm reviewing something it's hardly ever the current version (I'm usually comparing two revisions from SVN). Is this something that would be possible to implement as a plugin? Can the local inspections, at least, be run for an arbitrary Java file?

Thanks,
Colin
