The UI of the Compiler Results panel is very simple, consisting primarily of a self-populated list of compile successes, warnings, and errors (failures). Each entry can be moused over for further information, where applicable, and any warnings or errors will also offer a hyperlink, which will take you to the source of the message.
Result List - This self-populated list shows the results of your compile. Any hyperlinks to errors and warnings will appear. If the compile was successful, you will also see the total compile time in milliseconds.
Pop-up Help - By mousing over any entry in the list, you can get more information about the nature of the entry. In the case of hyperlinks, you will get the path directly to the problematic node.
Clear Button - This simply clears out the existing list of results.
