The Output window displays text output. The Output window can have one or more panes, represented by the OutputWindowPane object. Each IDE tool potentially uses a different output window pane. Panes are selected with a drop-down box at the top of the window. For example, build errors go to the "Build Errors" pane, while each external command tool potentially goes to its own distinct output window pane.
