What does this icon mean in Structure and Proj view?

Help!!

I have one class in my project not behaving "normally"!! It doesn't always get compiled when I do a build, and is quite often reported as "missing" from the classpath.

The one clue is that the icon for the class has a small x in the top left corner of the blue C circle. See attachment for screen print.

Does anyone know what this x means? I have been unable to locate it in the help.

Thanks
Steve J

The little X means the file is excluded from compilation. You can remove it from the exclusion list in Project Settings > Compiler.

Many thanks, spot on. How did this single class end up in the "Exclude from Compile" list though? It's the only entry in the list, and certainly not there on purpose!!

thanks again

When you right click on a compiler error in the Messages pane a context menu containing the action "Exclude From Compile" appears. It is quite easy to invoke that accidentally, leading to confusion:-)
It would be nice if there was a similar easy way to include a file in compilation again, but there isn't as far as I know.
