There may be an option starting me in the face but I just couldn't figure it out.
It looks like JSLint causes the Error List tab/tool window to become active (brings to front) as soon as a web application project starts to compile. That behavior steals the focus and foreground from any other tool window that might be grouped together
with the Error List, like the Output window for example.
I do want the errors, warnings, etc from JSLint to go to the Error List tab but I'd prefer that it only gained foreground it the build failed. That's how my VS is configured.
Is there a setting for this? If not I can file a request to fix this behavior.
