Executable arguments history
« on: September 08, 2017, 12:54:44 am »
Most of the programs I write require command line arguments.  The current control for command line arguments is embedded in the Project->ProjectProperties->Run/Debug dialog box.  It would be great if this text-edit control was a drop-down combo box, with a history of previous command line arguments.  I have to type a long list of arguments by hand every time I execute a program.  It would also be nice if this text control was stand-alone, so that I could add it to a toolbar, or menu option, in addition to being in the Project Properties.  It would also be great if the control was wider.  I can only see about 49 characters, and often the command line is longer than that once you add a path/file.ext, plus some options.

Debug > Start with arguments...

You can use dialog retrieval (F7 and F8 in most emulations) to toggle through previous sets of arguments.
