IE Show Source
« on: May 07, 2007, 05:22:38 pm »
After installing and un-installing Adobe GoLive (don't ask), IE no longer lists SlickEdit as a program for editing HTML.

How do I set IE to use SlickEdit 2007 to edirt HTML and respond to the "Show Source" request?

You can do those things by modifying the registry.  There's a great article that describes the different ways to add different programs for IE to shell here.  I've done this with SlickEdit and IE7 and it works fine.

I changed the obvious value in Current_User and Local_Machine to ...
"C:\Program Files\SlickEdit 2007\Win\vs.exe %1"
... and get Notepad as the editor.

If you could point me to your article I would appreciate it.

Thom:
I put together a Windows Installer package a month or so ago that will set up all the required registry keys (and a small utility program) to configure SlickEdit 2007 as both an available HTML Editor, as well as the "View Source" editor.
There's a small trick to using SE2007 as the "View Source" editor, namely that you have to pass the html-mode macro command in the commadline arguments to force SE to color the resulting files with HTML syntax.
Let me know if you're interested and I'll get it to you.

The installer says "The addon requires SlickEdit 2007", but SE 12.0.3.0 is installed! Any workaround available?

No, but how 'bout an update!  (attached)

This updated installer works with all 12.x versions, and *should* be future-proofed for next year's 13.x (SE 2008) releases.
