This extension adds a toggle icon (shortcut) in the status bar.
This extension tries to address an open feature request by adding a toggle icon (shortcut) in the status bar.
Following are the various options available to open/toggle the terminal.
However, there isn't an one-click option to do the same.
- View -> Terminal (
Ctrl + `)
- View: Toggle Terminal (using Command Palette)
- Terminal -> New Terminal
- Click the PROBLEMS view toggle to open the Panel and select Terminal tab`
- Toggle PANEL (
Ctrl + J) (and optionally select Terminal tab if its not on focus)
Clicking on the toggle does not show/hide the terminal -
- If the focus is switched from the active terminal to another section on the Panel (like
(Currently there isn't an API to know if the inline terminal has the focus - 117980).
- If the panel is closed using "Close Panel" option
As a workaround, we need to click the toggle twice to show (focus) on the active terminal first (and once more if we need to hide)
This does not work well if the Terminal is created in the Editor Area (
Terminal: Create New Terminal in Editor Area) instead of Panel (default)
Tests - There aren't any tests right now
