Direct code access in IDE

Unread post by daveplummermd »

Hello.
Previous versions allowed direct access to the code associated with a menu item from the IDE.
I can't find similar functionality in version 10.02 CE

For example: in the attached image clicking or dbl-clicking this menu item should take you to the code. What am I missing??

Did you Build the project before trying that?

Sometimes the IDE and your intentions get out of sync and you can fix that by Deleting the menu item in the Dialog and Window Expert and then immediately Set it back .

Harrison
Once I reassociate it, what action on the menu item takes you directly to the associated code?

The "Code Expert" that you used to use still exists, but it is a bit harder to open. You will have to right click the taskWindow.win entry in the project tree and choose Code Expert.

It is unfortunate that it has hidden itself in that way. It will be different in next version (hopefully you'll find it better).

When you get around to tweaking the IDE it would be helpful if you could also restore the former versions' keyboard responsiveness of the Form and Dialog property editors so that, for example, one could set a property to True by just pressing the T key, instead of being required to use the mouse to do a listbox pulldown.
