  • Wish for PBEdit

    When pressing Ctrl+E (Build and execute) the following should happen:
    Code:
     
    1) Save current files.
    2) Open current bas-file and get exe-dir (from #COMPILE-sentence) and res-dir(from #RESOURCE-sentence).
    3) if there is a res-dir: 
       a) look for a res-file. Compile it with pbres.exe. 
       b) look for a "resource.h"-file. Convert it to "resource.inc" (convert C-constants to PB-constants).
    4) Compile bas-file.   
    5) Change to exe-dir and execute exe-file.
    It would take less than a week for one programmer to add this to PBEdit.exe and it would make life a lot easier for many of us.
    I dont understand why it isnt there all ready. Please add it!

    Regards
    Peter

    Okay, I'll pass your suggestion along to the development staff.

      Jokes are jokes, but to import in future releases some ideas from VB IDE isn't bad thought (incl. add-in resource editor)

        Hi Peter...

        I do absloute agree...you can hardly call this an IDE !

        I have wrote me all this under DOS...using even a RAM-Drive for compilation and it makes developing (RUN and WATCH) a lot easier.
        Press :
        F10 = It compiles th *.RC-File and the *.BAS-File and run
        F 9 = It compiles the Bas-File using the existing *.PBR-File and run
        F 8 = Runs the last compiled *.EXE-File

        There is a lot to be creative and it is not a big deal but would make PB much better.

        ...Michael

          Things I would like to see and haven't seen on the wish list
          for PBEdit for windows: (I did a search for PBEDIT and Wish
          and also IDE and WISH)

          1) Allow importing of items from the clipboard that do not
          have both CR & LF in them, as when you seclect and copy any
          code from these forums. Right now you get the message that
          the import exceeds 256 characters. As a result I import to
          WordPad and then save as text to a *.bas file and then load
          it into the IDE.

          2) A Page Setup. Simply so the Page Number and file name can
          be printed. Now, in order to get any page numbers on a page
          I have to load the program into WordPad and print it.

          3) Horiz ScrollBar for Debugger Watch Window &/Or resizeable
          vertical border between Source window and the Watch Window - OR
          make the Watch Window a seperate Non Modal window that is resizeable
          and available to the user to so what ever they want with it.

          4) In Options, a browse function to be able to pick out paths.

                  I don't user PBEDIT any more. It's out of date. You want a simple wish?

                  Why can't I print the colour source code in colour on a colour printer? so I can read it on the subway on the way home from work in colour?

                  I use EditPlus now, You can set the macros so it colours for PB there are a list of keywords for PB on the ftp site in the RTF colour example, it can set macros to compile and run your code plus add tool buttons to call up the help, win32help, win32api.inc or charles Pezholds CHM version of Windows prgramming.

                  It's fast
                  It's 32bit (ahhhh, long file names)

                  and the only down side is you have to qualify your .inc files with a full path.

                    I have stopped using PBEDIT too.

                    I use TextPad. It has color-sytax-highligtning, Clip library and
                    easy access to help-files. I have written a program that I use to
                    compile the source code. It does all the things i wrote in the
                    start of this post (it can be found in the source code forum).

                    I do all the GUI-stuff in VisualStudio 6.0. After having modifyed
                    a dialog in VS, I just go to TextPad, press Ctrl+Alt+E, and the
                    new dialog pops up. This is possible because of the automatic
                    conversion of resource.h to resource.inc, and the automatic
                    conversion frem .res to .pbr.

                    Regards
                    Peter

                      Microsoft Internet Explorer has a bug in its clipboard handling
                      for dealing with "unformatted" HTML, such as used with the [ code ]
                      blocks in UBB forums. MSIE does not provide ANY end-of-line delimiters
                      for the normal text clipboard. The reason pasting works ok in WordPad
                      is that WordPad is importing the RTF version of the clipboard, which
                      does not have the same bug. Yes, it's conceivable that we'll add
                      RTF or HTML clipboard filtering to the IDE to get around this bug.

                      The other suggestions have been added to the list or given another
                      tickmark. We've had previous requests for color printing, for example...
                      thanks to all for the excellent ideas.
