How can I easily see which function I am editing?
« on: July 24, 2014, 02:43:54 pm »
Often, when editing or navigating through code, the function header is off-screen, making it difficult to determine which function the cursor is in without scrolling up to the beginning of the function. SlickEdit® provides a Current Context drop-down combo box that will show the current context of the cursor position. The Current Context drop-down also allows navigation within the current source file.

To display the Current Context, select View > Tool Windows, select the "Current Context" toolbar. The drop down Current Context combo box will dynamically display the tag currently being edited, such as the symbol or local variable that the cursor is in the scope of. In addition, the combo box can be used to see all locals and tags in the current buffer, and selecting one will cause SlickEdit to jump to that location in the file.
