SlickEdit API...
« on: February 19, 2008, 05:27:12 PM »
Is the editor designed to be programmable? If yes what's the logic in the API? I do not see any - just a random bunch of "grouped" inconsistently named functions? Am I wrong?

The API just grew over the years from its humble beginnings.  The lack of consistent naming is an ongoing problem when you want to find out how to do something new.  Fortunately, the help file is now much better than it was and there is a fair chance you will be able to get it to find the relevant API call for you.  But it is frustrating, especially when you write your own code to do something and then run across an API call you did not know about that does it better than you did.
