[feature-reques] Ability to suppress all stupid messages in "File->Global Settings"

Reported by: Technologov Owned by:
Component: other Version: VirtualBox 1.3.4

Guest type: other Host type: other


Software: Windows XP Pro SP2 Eng, no extra patches, VirtualBox 1.3.4 Full.

When first installing VirtualBox, it produces a lot of stupid messages which I can't easily get rid of.

Such as: when you "lock" in your keyboard and mouse or go fullscreen mode.

This might be good for total-noob, so leave it on by default, but for an experienced guy such as me, it is best to have an option to suppress all of this globally, for all VMs.

The best place IMHO to put this option is in: "File->Global Settings"

You can turn off certain messages when they're first displayed. That should be good enough.

Better solution

Undocumented feature, but you can run

VBoxManage setextradata global GUI/SuppressMessages "all"

This should probably be added to the manual.

The code checks for "all", "allMessageBoxes", and "allPopupPanes", but nowhere does the code set those values. they can only be set that way via VBoxManage, and this isn't documented.
