    Borje,

    Take a look at Kev Peels IDE. He has one of the most useful ideas yet.
    He has a floating dialog with a treeview that has all of your subs
    and functions in all of you includes. Everything is in alphabetical
    order. Click on the function and the file is loaded (or displayed)
    and you're on the function. Really good.

    With proper handles, almost everything is possible, but maybe not
    prefectly "legal" to do. Even tapping into PBedit and changing the
    combobox width could probably be considered as an illegal "hack",
    but I hope they don't mind. Otherwise, I guess we'll hear from
    them soon..

    Then again, DDE works almost the same way, so I don't know. If they
    don't mind, it would be fun to use this way to add some functionality
    to PBedit via for example a floating toolbar with additional commands,
    etc. I'll play around with some more when I have more time..

    Borje,
    Thanks for your little hacking program! It works like a charm on
    Win2000 too.
    Maybe you can extend it a little to tackle some other items on the
    wishlist...
    Kind regards
    Eddy

    now i'm even happier. what pb doesn't do, we can do ourselves.
    wrote a simple hack that fixes the narrow combo in pb edit. with
    some tweaking, i guess it's possible to set a new font to it too.
    see http://www.powerbasic.com/support/pb...ad.php?t=22983

    ------------------
    added out-commented code that shows how to set the font via getstockobject
    and wm_setfont. seems to work fine. maybe even possible to use it to
    enumerate the actual editor windows and change text and background
    colors too, for those who want.

    another possible use for us "foreigners" - grab menu handle and translate
    the text to our own language. make our own localized versions of pbedit,
    or any other app' ..

    Probably already is on the whish-list. Would be easy for PB to do a
    simple revision of the current editor and fix some of the things we
    have reported. A 2-minute job, if even that (%CB_SETDROPPEDWIDTH).
    Don't understand why they don't do this now and then, since the new
    version has taken so long to complete. Even minor fixes like this
    one would keep us all happy for a while more..

    (Okay, I'm happy as it is - maybe "happier", is a better word..)

    started a topic PBDLL IDE wishlist item.

    PBDLL IDE wishlist item.

    Hi all,
    A small suggestion for improvement of the next PBDLL IDE.
    I would appreciate a wider "Function/sub finder" combobox in the IDE.
    You know, the combobox where you can select a function or sub to go
    directly to that function.
    I tend to use rather long and meaningful subnames, like:
    CB_MF_SourceFileButt, where CB stands for Callback, MF for Mainform
    and I also usually define the sort of control (Button in this case).
    All this produces rather long names so that the last 6 or 7 characters
    are not visible in the "function/sub finder" of the IDE.
    Choosing a smaller font is also an option.
    I say all of this in the assumption that we can't change any of this
    in the current version (6.0) of the IDE...
    Kind regards
    Eddy
