not bad but still prefer editplus 2.1 (www.editplus.com)
8th May 2004, 10:07
i like edit plus too cuz of all features and stuff but if you culd tweak your app some more it could stand a chanse for example your app dont save on contl + s keyboard shortcut the little popup at the start every time anoying, not all the xml code gets highlightted properly and the option to save on close when no file is open insted of just closing and it got an error when you whant to open a file and the window opens but you deside to not open anything and close the browse window it gives an error o and no line number very nesesary for my many line errors lol if you can fix this ill give it another run
i like the option yours got of seen the xml files in the current folder,cool but no resize for the side where the .xml file list show up you should change it to the bottom of the screen to save space and make more code writing screen area
sorry if you whernt expectin beta testing response but kind of like the too you know good job on it and hope you can fix some of the stuff i pointed out to mak it more user friendly.
can't try it now, but I will..
At the moment I prefer Ultraedit ;) Are there any syntax-highlighting configuratin files available for it? (for winamp files, of couse ;))

i will eventually add options to configure the highlighting :D do any of you know of a good xml parsing component for delphi? i wanna add a tree view off the file

Sorry. But you can just scan it normally for includes with a loop, just look for <include file="x" />.
If you want a regex, use something like this:

ive updated the file on my server so feel free to download again to see the fixes and additions i have made to the program :)

promaneX, that preaty good,its simple yet effective,lol.
i found a little bug tho, when you create a file and then save as or export as type: select .xml, .rtf or .html from the dropdown, unless you type in the extention of the file it wont save as the type selected.
and i dont know if you can do this, but is there any way that the files on the bottom can auto organice in a horizontal fashion,and then in rows,kind of like edit plus and that the window doesn't close any more then 1 or 2 rows,i found out that ones the window closes you have to restart the application to get the window in the default position,
again good job.

10th May 2004, 15:33
carlosp , the other guys downloaded the new file ok so did i :) try to download it again it was prob an interupted download
that bug shall be flattened very soon i noticed it just after i uploaded the file lol grr
do you mean you want a shell style view of the files rather than a list?
i will add font options soon
10th May 2004, 16:04
