If you like displaying all output of compile/grep/etc. an all temp-buffers like *Help*-buffers in an extra compile-window (see Temp- and compile-buffers) but you dislike wasting the space of this compile-window if you are just editing then you can get a compile-window "on demand". Just do the following:
ecb-compile-window-heightto not nil and save it for future sessions. This gives you an extra compile-window at the bottom.
(add-hook 'ecb-activate-hook (lambda () (ecb-toggle-compile-window -1)))
This hides the extra compile-window direct after the start of ECB because there is no need for a compile-window at this moment.
This is all you have to do. Now if you run
grep or other compile-modes) or display temp-buffers like
*Help*-buffers then ECB autom. displays the compile-window at the
bottom and display the output there.
If you have finished with using the compile- or temp-output (e.g.
fixing errors) then you can throw away the compile-window just by
ecb-toggle-compile-window - ECB will reactivate it autom.
before next compilation or help-buffer-display.!
