- when you click on a line other than the current one, the line number in the status bar doesn't update.

Suggestions for The Go To Line dialog

- Fix the title

- Set the default value to the current line number

- Make the "enter" and "ESC" keys work

The rest works great.

A couple suggestions:

1. "removed all trigger charactors except @ and { for autocompletion dropdown"

Why did you do that? Autocomplete is a very cherished feature for most developers. IMHO, it was better before this release for this fact alone.

<{POST_SNAPBACK}>

uploaded new binary (same zip file)

added Option to add remove trigger characters for autocompletion

in "Tools->Environment Options -> Misc"

btw: there is no Registry access (reading or writing) everything is written to Ini files

unzip it it and run. to remove AutoEd just delete it.

I'm at work now.

- This is the first time I extracted the zip on this comp.

- I run AutoEd.exe

Result:

- I get 2 error boxes:

(The first one that showed is the top one)

Don't mind the colors. I wanted to keep the size down of the image.

>> New remarks:

- AutoCompletion: When you write the char "{" for AutoCompletion, normally, this display a

keys list, right. But, if you write this, after of any char (in the same line), appears a blank list.

- Comments: Normally, must display(color) the section commented between #CS and #CE.

- Unexpected event: There is a kind of event that turn AutoEd as "Always On Top" mode(sometimes).

Example:

-> Open AutoEd.

-> Drag/move any window(program) over AutoEd.

Result: AutoEd window it's activated.

Keep up the good work. :)

BTW: A feature would be nice: "Recent documents list"

Yea starting to shape up real nice, if you are taking wishlist requests I have always been a big fan of tree-view file manager panel that can dock on left or right. ( I prefer left but hey thats me)

Uploaded new build (same zip file)

November 14th,2004

added Snippets Library. save small pieces of often used code to the

snippets library and access them from the drop down ComboBox.

It will insert the code at the current cursor position.

Note: If you wish to keep the customized editor settings and colors you have made, just replace the AutoEd.ini and colors.ini with the ones you already have.

edit: btw I will add a dockable tree view file manager. as well as a code explorer

You really are making the perfect editor

Currently I use Crimsone Editor because it has everything I need.

Some things that you could add:

- Ability to add/edit/delete tools.

Accessible through a menu called (for instance) Tools.

- Open template. Open an existing file and use it as an unsaved file.

- Upload to a FTP server

- Recent files

- Find in files. Recursive, file extension filter, folder choose

- Find and replace with tab and newline characters

A possible bug:

How does the "Snippets" thing work?

"Enter" doesn't work and there's no "Insert" or "OK" button

Thanks for the feedback.

Not sure what you mean by the template : "use it as an unsaved fie"

Recent Files has already been implemented : "File -> ReOpen"

Snippets: "Tools -> Snippets" will allow add/delete/edit/new (or from the button beside the combobox)

oh.. you mean when the list is displayed? you can't use Enter? If that's it then I will add HotKeys and doubleclick events....

Open template explanation:

- Menu item "Open Template"

- User clicks and chooses a file

- When the file is chosen a new tab is made named (for instance) Untitled 2

- When the user changes the content and tries to save, the program asks where to save.

When the user changes the content and closes the program it asks where to save.

Except if the user didn't change the content, then just close.

I thought ReOpen meant reload the current file...

AutoEd is really slick!

I especially love the tabbed open files and the snippets.

I few things I noticed while playing with the latest version.... maybe bugs, maybe known already:

1) If I open AutoEd and then open a file not located in the AutoEd folder, then make a color change, it errors "Cannot open file: colors.ini"

2) a) I open AutoEd and open a file IN the AutoEd folder, the default comment color is blue, I'm used to VB so I want green. It shows changes to the color while the Env Options dialog is open, but drops back to blue when I hit OK. Never writes to the colors.ini (although it did write something because I had colors.ini open in Ultraedit and is barked to load the changed file, but it did not write/change the color for Comment - Foreground)

b,) I delete the color code for Comment - Foreground in the colors.ini. Open a file and change the comment color to green again, it stays... and keeps the green comments on any other file I open. But only for the AutoEd session, close and reopen AutoEd and comments are back to black.

c) My workaround - Using this Delphi colors page I got the decimal value for green and manually edited the colors.ini. Nice green comments now. :)

3) Editor font - I'm wondering why this font chooser doesn't load the entire installed font list? I was going to switch to Arial but it's not there, the chooser only shows about 10 fonts.

4) I noticed some unpredictability when using the Snippets dropdown. If I highlite some text, select the dropdown but then click off of it, it will delete my highlited text.

At times it would keep adding the same snippet to the file if I selected the dropdown, scrolled over the list, and then clicked off (by off I mean the menu bar, or on the text editor, sometimes with different effects). I was unable to pinpoint a sequence to this.

Testing done on Win98se

Sorry if any of these are old news, I didn't read this entire thread. :)

For program continuity and to make it faster to use, I would like to see the recently used item list similar to other programs (see attached).

Also, is there a way to run the script file using a menu option, or better yet, a shortcut key?

Also, I would like to disable the snippet pop-up thingy that is always empty and making me go back to my mouse.

Great work! I am a regular user now.

Oh yeah, one more thing...would you please add shortcut keys to change tabs, F2 (left), F3 (right).

Thanks!

November 15th, Uploaded new build (same zip file)

Fixed problem with saving to colors.ini (boogers I borked it, sorry about that...)

@scottswan there is a "about-colors.txt" in the same archive (been there awhile) which describes how to manually edit if wanted....clGreen

The Font thing is an issue I'm working on. The editor options dialog is Synedit's and has limited fonts. I will get another workaround.

.

I did some work on the snippets ComboBox (added OnKey events, Enter.Esc) I haven't been able to duplicate your errors...would a doubleclick event be better?

@NewKreation : added new menu item "Script ->Run" which simply runs ShellExecute on AutoIt %CurrentFilename% (have to save file first) F9 runs..

I am currently working on the syntax check and compile items...

about the AutoCompletion popping up goto: "Tools-> Environment Option-> Misc- Trigger Characters" and remove all but @ and {

thanks for all the suggestions will attempt to implement them..
