Pinned topic Eclipse DXL Editor

‏2012-08-24T16:37:14Z |
Where can I get good advise in the Eclipse DXL Editor? Having a hard time getting it to work right, such as goto matching pairs. Using Crimson for other programs which so far I still prefer.

-Louie

Found Preferences .. Keys .. and "Go to Matching Bracket", but it doesn't do anything. Cannot seem to "goto last edit". Must not have it installed correctly.

    Hello!

    Do you mean the Sodius DXL Editor? I have installed it without any problems. What especially do you have for problems?

    What is "matching pairs"?

    Best regards

    Mine says "Eclipse SDK" (v4.1.2) and I think "Sodius" is the old name. I see in the "About" it talks about the "Sodius DXL Editor" installed (v2.0.7).

    if (whatever)
    {
       bla bla bla
    }
    else
    { bla bla bla
      whatever[]
    }
    


    There are three sets of matching brace pairs above (two {} and one []). Using Crimson, if your cursor is on either side of any of them, it will:

     

    • highlight the other matched pair so you can see it
    • got a key-stroke that will jump to that matching brace.

    For those of us that need to line things up neatly, this is REAL handy to make sure I've got the braces correct.

    In any event, I'm pretty sure I did not install this correctly.

    Anybody using it a lot and can direct me to help?

    Well, I also did not get the keyboard shortcut running (there is one, but one of my colleagues is keeping this secret, I will have to ask him). What I usually do, I double click on the inside of the brace, which will make DXL Editor select the range in between the matching braces. Then I look whether or not is it the one I wanted. Sometimes I need to scroll to see it, if the block is to large to fit on one screen. That makes it a little uncomfortable.

    The selection thing (showing the other brace) works to, but you have to place the cursor on the inside of the brace. I am pretty sure you installed it correctly. Tell me if double clicking and selecting works for you.

    {code}
    // double click or select where the # are
    if (whatever)
    {#
    bla bla bla
    #}
    else
    {# bla bla bla
    whatever[]
    #}

    This is just one issue. Are there resources online for this sort of questions?

    The Sodius DXL Editor runs on Eclipse so I have found most of my answers by searching for Eclipse help.
    Like anything, it takes a while to get used to the differences but its definitely worth it.
    Just about to get debug license which should help with some scripts.
