General Feasibility Questions for SE Macros
« on: June 04, 2015, 03:12:14 pm »
I'm about to attempt to make some debugging at work for myself and possibly others a lot easier and I'm wondering about some capabilities from the experts before I start digging in. This primarily is centered around parsing a history of events file from the life of a widget.  Things I'm looking for:

  • Color coding capabilities for files that aren't languages, can I just parse the entire file and call some select/color functions?
  • Color coding a line using a regex
  • Mouse over, line click and line double click event handling
  • Ability to activate the preview window at a certain line of code (debug file includes source information)
  • Ability to automatically detect a file extension and open outside the main mdi window
