I have been using vi/vim/gvim for a few months now, and am loving it. However, I recently discovered an annoyance while using gvim. I will often start a bash shell from within gvim so that I can use our versioning-control software to either check a file in or out. However, this means that when I exit the bash shell, gvim senses the change in the file permissions, and pops up a dialog box notifying me that the file has changed, and allowing me to either dismiss the message or re-load the file. I always reload the file, but I find that it requires me to move from the keyboard to my mouse and click the "load file" button.
My question is this: is there a setting in gvim that will make all those notifications in-line like it would be in the non-gui vim? I want to have no windowed dialog boxes, because they require me to switch to the mouse. I just want it to prompt me in the command/status bar at the bottom, and then I can type my response without ever leaving my beloved home-row.
Thanks in advance!
