Hi,
I would like to create a macro that puts the focus on the "Find symbol" window and changes the "look in" option to "<Current File>".
Could someone help please?
Thanks in advance,
Noam

I did a similar thing here
http://community.slickedit.com/index.php/topic,3403.0.html

If you want the "search for" box to be empty you need to uncomment the two commented lines.

Code: [Select]
_command void find_symbol_word_at_cursor() name_info(','VSARG2_REQUIRES_EDITORCTL|VSARG2_CMDLINE)
{
   int xx;
   _control ctl_search_for;
   _str s = cur_word(xx);
   int wid = activate_toolbar('_tbfind_symbol_form', 'ctl_search_for', true);
   wid.ctl_search_for.p_text = s;
   wid.ctl_search_for._set_sel(1,length(s)+1);
}
 
 
_command void find_symbol_in_current_file() name_info(','VSARG2_REQUIRES_EDITORCTL|VSARG2_CMDLINE)
{
   int xx;
   _control ctl_search_for;
   _control ctl_lookin;
   int wid = activate_toolbar('_tbfind_symbol_form', 'ctl_search_for', true);
   wid.ctl_lookin.p_text = '<Current File>';
   //wid.ctl_search_for.p_text = '';
   //wid.ctl_search_for._set_sel(1,1);
}

oops, forgot to say how to load it.  Put the stuff below into a file e..g mymacros.e, plus the code I already posted, then load it using the load module command on the macro menu.

Code: [Select]
#include "slick.sh"

#pragma option(strictsemicolons,on)
#pragma option(strict,on)
#pragma option(autodecl,off)
#pragma option(strictparens,on)

At some point (perhaps in V19) you might need to call activate_tool_window instead of activate_toolbar

Code: [Select]
       

#include "slick.sh"

#pragma option(strictsemicolons,on)
#pragma option(strict,on)
#pragma option(autodecl,off)
#pragma option(strictparens,on)


_command void find_symbol_word_at_cursor() name_info(','VSARG2_REQUIRES_EDITORCTL|VSARG2_CMDLINE)
{
   int xx;
   _control ctl_search_for;
   _str s = cur_word(xx);
   int wid = activate_tool_window('_tbfind_symbol_form', true, 'ctl_search_for');
   wid.ctl_search_for.p_text = s;
   wid.ctl_search_for._set_sel(1,length(s)+1);
}
 
 
_command void find_symbol_in_current_file() name_info(','VSARG2_REQUIRES_EDITORCTL|VSARG2_CMDLINE)
{
   int xx;
   _control ctl_search_for;
   _control ctl_lookin;
   int wid = activate_tool_window('_tbfind_symbol_form', true, 'ctl_search_for');
   wid.ctl_lookin.p_text = '<Current File>';
   //wid.ctl_search_for.p_text = '';
   //wid.ctl_search_for._set_sel(1,1);
}

I am trying this on v19.
It complains about line: wid.ctl_lookin.p_text = '<Current File>';
The error is: Control 'ctl-lookin' must be declared or cannot be a member of non-struct/union/class type.

Actually I think the way wid defined confuses me. It's an int, but then you attempt to access its members. It does work on v18.

It works for me with no error.  Maybe the call to activate_tool_window is failing for you.  Try this

   int wid = activate_tool_window('_tbfind_symbol_form', true, 'ctl_search_for');
   if (wid)
      wid.ctl_lookin.p_text = '<Current File>';

Does activate_find_symbol bring up the find symbol window?
What platform are you on?  I'm testing with V19.0.0.14 - what version are you?

Yes, activate-find-symbol works as expected. I am on v19.0.0.14. Adding if statement doesn't help - kind of makes sense because it fails to compile. I checked wid value - 204, not 0. It seems to have problem accessing ctl_lookin sub-field of wid.

Oh. I think I got it. I needed definition of _control ctl_lookin to make it work.
So eventually it looks like this:
Code: [Select]
_command void find_symbol_in_current_file() name_info(','VSARG2_REQUIRES_EDITORCTL|VSARG2_CMDLINE)
{
   _control ctl_lookin;
   int wid = activate_tool_window('_tbfind_symbol_form', true, 'ctl_search_for');
   wid.ctl_lookin.p_text = '<Current File>';
}
