TypeScript Tool Window
IntelliJ IDEA shows this tool window only when the TypeScript Language Service is activated on the TypeScript page as described in TypeScript. Use this tool window to view the errors detected by the TypeScript Language Service and the built-in TypeScript compiler.
The tab lists the discrepancies in the code detected by the TypeScript Language Service. The list is updated dynamically as you change your code.
- By default, the list contains only the errors from the file in the active editor tab and the full path to this file is displayed at the top. To show the errors across the entire project, press the Show project errors toggle button on the toolbar. Error messages are grouped by files in which they were detected.
- To navigate to the code in question, double-click the corresponding error message or select it and choose Jump to Source on the context menu.
The tab opens when you click and choose the compilation scope from the list:
- The tab lists all the compilation errors detected in the chosen scope. This list is not affected by changes you make to your code and is updated only when you invoke compilation manually again.
- Error messages are grouped by files in which they were detected. To navigate to the code in question, double-click the corresponding error message or select it and choose Jump to Source on the context menu.
