New functionality or How can I...

Post by bsuggo » Mon Jun 13, 2011 11:49 pm

Hi Jussi
Up til now, we have been using Crimson editor to edit Pronto files. i'm leading charge to change to Zeus. (love the code folding, function listing, templates etc, I'm a looong term Delphi programmer fallen on hard times so it is great to some of these niceties of life back)

We are always working with ftp files. At the moment I have F10 set to FileOpenURL which is fine but is there anyway to set the command as a button on the tool bar?

In Crimson you can mark a block and then drag it to another area of the file. Is there a way of doing this in Zeus?

After we compile the program(external to zeus), if we use the 'next compile error' Zeus appears to go looking for the error file in the right location but looks for a 'filename.zerr' file. how do you change that to a 'filename.err''. I've tried '$FB.err' but with no success.

Can you set up Zeus to command an ftp compiler?

Sorry for all the questions but as yet I haven't been able to find answers for them.
regards

Bruce S.

Hi Bruce,

You can configure the toolbar using Options, Toolbar Options menu.

But unfortunately not all the keyboard commands are available to the toolbar and after checking at this end I can see that none of the FTP commands can be added at this stage :(

I will look to add at least a few of these FTP commands to the toolbar configuration :)

But in the mean time you can create a macro that just runs the FileOpenURL and then bind that macro to the toolbar.

See here for more details on how to do this.
In Crimson you can mark a block and then drag it to another area of the file. Is there a way of doing this in Zeus?

Yes. Just mark some text, click an hold then drag and drop. But I just tried this and it did not work :(

The reason is the default marking is set to ragged and for some reason this is not working for this marking mode :(

But if you use the Options, Editor Options menu, General section and set the marking mode to CUA then it should work ;)
After we compile the program(external to zeus), if we use the 'next compile error' Zeus appears to go looking for the error file in the right location but looks for a 'filename.zerr' file.

It does indeed.
how do you change that to a 'filename.err''. I've tried '$FB.err' but with no success.

Is there a reason you need to change this :?:

I am guessing your compiler tool creates an error file called 'filename.err'.

If this is the case there are at least two things you can try that should work fine:

(1) Use a batch file: http://www.zeusedit.com/zforum/viewtopic.php?t=174

(2) Use a macro to run the compile: http://www.zeusedit.com/zforum/viewtopic.php?t=74
Can you set up Zeus to command an ftp compiler?

I am not sure :?:

I think the breakage in the FTP file handing in in the 4.97f version was due to an attempt to make something like this work :(

If it was to work I suspect you would have to uses some sort of macro approach.

Cheers Jussi

One other thing you may want to look into is tweaking the Zeus ctags feature to support the Pronto language.

See here for more details.

Cheers Jussi
