Feature requests for the IDE
« on: September 18, 2004, 03:40:41 pm »
Hi again Pelle!

The more I use your IDE and compiler, the more I like it! :D Thanks a lot for great work. I have some requests/bug reports though:

    - Dockable toolbar and property list in the dialog editor
    - Dockable toolbar in the graphic editor
    - Pushing F1 on some keywords (such as fopen), doesn't open the help file on the right topic
    - Some times the files in the project browser are listed with full names (think you've already got a report on that bug)
    - Bug: Yesterday, the characters in the editor screwed up when using the code-folding feature... Sorry, I've not been able to reproduce it yet...
    - (And Ctrl+Backspace of course :D)

Maybe you could include these add-ins to the package as well: checking for updates, open current file in hex editor, switch between release and debug build.

Thanks once again!

Best regards,
Tommy

Hello Tommy,

Thank you very much!

I should probably add dockable windows, at least as an option, even if I don't like them myself - they are like slippery soaps to me, docking when I don't want them to, and not undocking when I want that. Will not be in 2.90 IDE, but I will look at it later. Promise.

Installing 2.90 beta over 2.80 (IDE) will produce what you describe regarding F1. This should work once the new IDE is finished.

I *think* I have finally fixed the problem with filenames in the project window/tree. It happens when there are 'dependencies' outside the project directory (like special #include files, in some other directory).

I have found several problems myself with the cold folding, maybe one of them will fix your problem too...?

Ctrl+Backspace is implemented now. Will be in 2.90 IDE.

Thanks for the quick reply Pelle! :D Seems good! ;) Any idea of when you will release the 2.90 IDE?

Last month!  :lol:

...seriously, it has been delayed because of the move to the new web server, and some personal stuff. I don't like to give time estimates, but probably in the next week or two.

Another IDE request:

Could you make support for folding of regions (comment based)?.. Example:
Code: [Select]
//#REGION
   code goes here...
//#END_REGION

Maybe. I'm not so happy about directives inside comments, so I need to find another syntax that works.
