Can Build->Select Configuration drive Selective Display
« on: August 19, 2006, 01:05:19 pm »
This thread -- http://community.slickedit.com/index.php?topic=276.0 -- suggested a new feature.  (Maybe it can already be done.)

It would be handy to be able to select a configuration (Build->Set Active Configuration) and have a certain set of tokens get defined for Selective Display.  Perhaps there is a _proj... or _project... handler that could be used.

It looks like _prjconfig_xxx might work.  The next challenge is setting the tokens for Selective Display, and then activating it.

You may tweak your project setup using the 'Open command' feature.

I'm going to make use of it to switch my C-Compiler tagfile setup for my Windows- and my embedded projects.

Am I missing something here? To change tag files (I have several embedded compilers along with Borland and Microsoft windows one) in the project properties I use the Compile/Link tab to specify the compiler.

I had missed that but support very kindly put me straight when I whinged about my sticky VC++ tag file...

I'm not sure that will do what I want.  According to the on-line help:
Commands can be entered for projects that are executed when the project is activated. This information is stored per project, not per configuration.

I'd like per-configuration settings.  It is unclear from the Help as to what sorts of commands you can use, and where they are applied.
I'd like to do something like this:
preprocess XVTWS=1 MTFWS=7 XOLWS=5 WINWS=1 WIN32 MACWS=0 XmVersion=1 XVT_TEXTEDIT

Unfortunately, typing that in to the Open command window just sent SlickEdit on a long trip south...

@Wanderer:

Similar things happened to me when adding some stuff to the 'Open' commands.
@see http://community.slickedit.com/index.php?topic=264.msg1006#msg1006
Maybe commenting (as I did) the ref'd paragraph helps.

@dunkers:
Is it that simple ... I completely ignored that b/c mostly I roll my own build env.
It's a bit confusing that all avail. tagfiles are always visible in the tagfile list...
However, thanks a lot !
