Using SlickEdit wtih Visual Studio 2013
« on: August 20, 2015, 09:45:39 pm »
Is there a way to have Visual Studio pull up my SlickEdit window when clicking on an error/warning from compile.

IOW, I don't want to compile from within SlickEdit, but when an error/warning is generated in Visual Studio I want it to go to my SlickEdit window.

Cheers,
Alan

I haven't tried this in a while but you should be able to add a custom tool to Visual studio which launches SlickEdit. I'm pretty sure there's a way for visual studio to pass the line number too (vs "<file>" -#<line>).

I've used the VS extension "VsOpenIn" in the past. A simple solution to start an external editor at the precise line and column of a file opened in a VSedit window from the VS error message, very configurable, and free.

This does not do directly exactly what you want, but the extension source is available--maybe there's some way to adapt it for the VS error window.
