Right click 'Open include file' feature request.

Post by David Morris » Fri Sep 29, 2006 12:00 am

Hi

It would be neat to have an 'Open with Association' for include files in the same manor as the work space.

That way in an 'rc' file you could quickly open a bitmap or icon for editing.

Hey thanks for that. Strange how something small addition can add a lot of functionality.

As a longer term suggestion:

How about:
1) Changing 'Open' to 'Edit' or 'Text Edit'.
2) Changing 'Open with Association' to 'Open by default application' or 'Open by registered application' or something like that.
3) Have Zues decide if the file is something that has a Zues DOC type, and if it does make 'Text Edit' the top item in the menu, and if not 'Open by default Application (or whatever)'. This should be done for both 'include files' and the Workspace.

This way it is pretty likely that the menu with drop down to default on the most likely choice... anything to save keystrokes!

Hi David,
How about:
1) Changing 'Open' to 'Edit' or 'Text Edit'.

I'm not sold on this idea, but I must admit I am not overly happy with the way the menus names are at present :?

I went with Open since it matches the Open found on the File, Open menu.
2) Changing 'Open with Association' to 'Open by default application' or 'Open by registered application' or something like that.

I like Open 'example.bmp' using registered application
3) Have Zues decide if the file is something that has a Zues DOC type, and if it does make 'Text Edit' the top item in the menu, and if not 'Open by default Application (or whatever)'. This should be done for both 'include files' and the Workspace.

No that's not a bad idea. That gets my tick of approval ;)

Cheers Jussi

Hi David,

I have re-submitted the latest Zeus patch and it now works as described above ;)

All you need to do is download and re-apply this latest patch found here:

Hi

Really cool to have the feature, and it is working generally well for the include files except for that issue, which I am thinking is the double back slashes, for which I send a sample file to you privately I have noticed that the work space does not yet have that feature enabled?

(Bask slash example)

Code: Select all

#ifdef _SERVICE
SERVER_ICO		ICON  "c:\\work\\montel\\resource\\Icons\\SERVERSV.ICO"
#else
SERVER_ICO		ICON  "c:/work/montel/resource/Icons/SERVERCN.ICO"
#endif
