I have a question regarding Notepad++ console where you can see the whether the connection was made successfully or not and other things.. When you install Notepad++, sometimes it shows up other times it doesn't and as far as I remember there was a shortcut, a combination of key you can press to toggle it. But I don't remember now how to get it to work. You can see how it looks like in the image bellow or by clicking on this link.
So if anyone remembers how to toggle it using keyboard shortcuts, would be nice. But here is a temporary solution I was able to backtrack. On Windows machine, open Notepad++, then create or open any file. Then on the tab of that current file do a right-click with your mouse and choose Save As. Not that we need to save anything, but rather open the folder containing all preferences and temporary files created by Notepad++. Now all we have to do is go back few levels/folders until we are in a folder called NppFTP. If you find a file there called NppFTP or NppFTP.xml, select that file and right-click it with your mouse to select Edit. That should open it in a normal text-editor Notepad. On the 2nd line there should be an option outputShown="0". If it is set to 0 and save the file, it won't show the console output next time you open Notepad++. If it is set to 1, it will show the console next time you open Notepad++.
I think that who ever made Notepad++ should make this option available as a button on the main menu. Because the more control you have over things you do when you're working and especially saving to FTP, it is very useful.
Have you seen the button in the GUI if the plugin ?
See my screenshot.
Unfortunately, the plugin does not register his function "show messages windows" in the "Shortcut mapper/plugin commands"
The plugin register "Show NppFTp Windows" "Focus NppFTp Windows" "About NppFTp" but not the "show messages windows". You should ask this feature to the nppFTT teams.
