Windows/Console

/* The current option is inconsistent, when starting directly (no console), compared to starting via a command prompt (console used, and prompt not returned). The standard behavior of GUI only programs, is to return the prompt straight away, if start
:: Showing the Windows console "on-demand" is not common behavior on Windows - you either open the console at the same time as your program, or you don't open it at all. If we were talking about the "internal" console, or a separate GUI window, it can work, although it's not ideal either. --[[User:Pidgeot|Pidgeot]] 16:23, 25 October 2010 (UTC)
::: Yes, I have not come across any Windows program that will show the console window on demand in that way. [[User:Kirben|Kirben]] 00:23, 26 October 2010 (UTC)
::: I agree, suddenly and unexpectedly showing the console like that seems worse to me (from a UI design point of view) than always showing the console. To iterate it once more: If there are messages the user should see, we must not rely on the console output, but rather must display the information to the user by other means, such as GUI dialogs. And this holds true regardless of how the discussion here is settled in the end. --[[User:Fingolfin|Fingolfin]] 09:30, 26 October 2010 (UTC)
