Event Log in the right-hand part of the bottom tool window bar


The Event Log tool window shows the information about "important" events that take place in IntelliJ IDEA.

The information about problematic situations (e.g. errors and exceptions) is displayed in red. In such cases, clicking the more link (if present) opens a balloon with a more detailed description of the error or exception. Clicking a description link (depending on the error, the text may be different e.g. NullPointerException) opens the IDE Fatal Errors dialog which lets you review the error and create a bug reports.

The General tab appears when the Database tab opens. In the absence of the Database tab, the information is shown in the output pane which, in this case, is not tabbed.
