SlickEdit 2018 v23 Beta Discussion / Very weird hang
« Last post by jporkkahtc on August 17, 2018, 09:52:51 pm »
So while editing a python script, Slickedit hung.
I tried attaching the VisualStudio debugger, and hit pause.
But, it shows no stack trace :-(
It does show a bunch of threads.
Then I noticed, in the VS Attach dialog it shows VS.exe is a managed process.
I started a 2nd instance of VS to compare.

The 2nd instance doesn't appear to be managed code.

I'll upload the minidump, but I don't know if you can do anything with it.

Beta 2 will do better with the granularity here. This needs to scroll by pixels and not multiples of the minimap font height.

Thanks for noticing

Just making sure I understand exactly what you're seeing.

It doesn't matter which monitor is primary. You can't drag from the primary monitor to the secondary monitor because the visual helpers are drawn in the wrong location.

Dragging to the primary monitor always works and the visual helpers are drawn in the correct location.

SlickEdit® / Re: Using Google java format/code style?
« Last post by patrick on August 17, 2018, 02:03:48 pm »
There isn't a predefined Google Java style that ships with SlickEdit.  I made a quick pass through section 4 of the style guide, and put together a (attached) style you can import via Tools -> Options -> Import/Export.   Once you import it, you should be able to select it as the language style in Tools -> Options -> Languages -> Application Languages -> Java -> Formatting.

The differences from the style guide:
  • There isn't a rule for spaces around the "&" in a type bounds.  We'd need to add that to the formatter.
  • We don't do the line wrapping.
  • With the exception of some rules for return/throw, we don't rewrite code.  So we don't force unbraced "if" statements to braced, or add grouping parenthesis, etc...

The OS X About this MAC reports the display sizes as: 1366x768,3840x2160,2880x1800
The last one is the MAC its self.
A browser based tool ( says: 1366x786,3840x2160,3360x2100

The OS X and browser tool report in the same order. The SlickEdit looks like it shows in reverse order but also wrong for all but the lowest resolution display.

Dragging on the primary display works, dragging on either non-primary display does not work. In either case on the non-primary display the cross shaped symbol with the box in the middle that lets you put multiple tool windows in the same window shows up on the primary display. If you move the mouse to get to it, it disappears.

SlickEdit® / Using Google java format/code style?
« Last post by edgue on August 17, 2018, 09:50:21 am »
Google has various style guides for languages such as Java, C++ ( see for details.

There are instructions how to use the style guides with IDEs like IntelliJ or eclipse.

I am simply wondering if there are pre-defined "formatter templates" for SlickEdit with google java format?

« Last post by Clark on August 16, 2018, 11:54:14 pm »
its because the minimap must use unique pixel positions divisible by the font pixel height. Would be nice if it could use all pixel positions.

Also, the minimap slider is WAAAAAAAY bigger which reduces the number of pixel positions available.
Added support for "List filenames only"

Now if you edit a file of an unknown type (no extension or unknown extension) that has binary data, the Binary language mode is used.
I uploaded buildmsg.tar.gz to support.

Open the buildmsg.vpw workspace and do a build.

Notice that the "Message List" tab is not populated with the warnings/infos.

Need to do this in linux

I get the same.  When I use the wildcard option, none of the jars in the repository show up in the generated classpath.  Only the ones I add individually.  I'll look into it.
