Features and/or Improvements / "Refresh" Option for open files
« Last post by rowbearto on February 23, 2018, 09:45:09 pm »
SE is usually pretty good at auto-reloading files, but sometimes I'm not sure SE loaded the latest version. I also sometimes see notifications that SE stopped doing auto-reload on some files.

Would be nice if SE could provide a "refresh" button, so that I can force SE to reread the latest contents of the file (especially if it is a logfile written by another process).
I'm looking into this.
mwb1100: Yeah, this is pretty much what I do when too many "Reload Modified Files" pop up - I go to File->Save as and save it somewhere else, then it goes away. Not ideal, would be nice if SlickTeam could find another way.
This may be a bone headed suggestion, but what I'd do as a workaround until SE got the new feature implemented is copy the logfile I was analyzing to another file, and open that copy. Not ideal, but it would probably be a good enough workaround for me.  Or I'd use another editor for the logfile.

My personal example is that I have to deal with serial consoles to embedded devices all the time.  When I'm looking in the scrollback buffer and the device sends some new data, putty (the terminal emulator I use) happily scrolls away from whatever I'm looking at.  To solve that problem I copy the putty contents to the clipboard and paste it into an editor buffer.

I put in a fix for this which will go into a future build (not hot fixable).

SlickEdit® / Code complete for Ada record elements of array doesn't work?
« Last post by rgloden on February 23, 2018, 08:20:23 am »

Ada arrays of records seem to confuse the SE parser.  SE doesn't provide any code completion and it colors the record element of the array (e.g. "zip" in myArray(2).zip in code below) red as though it is undefined.

Code: [Select]
package body time_helper is

   type myNewType is
         name    : integer;
         street  : integer;
         zip     : integer;
      end record;

   myData : myNewType;

   type myArrayType is array (1..5) of myNewType;
   myArray : myArrayType;

   procedure next_day is
   begin -- next_day
      myData.street   := 4;
      myArray(2).zip  := 4;
   end next_day;

end time_helper;
SlickEdit® / Ada generic instantiation confusing parser

SlickEdit Pro 2016 (v21.0.3.0 64-bit)

In the Ada sample below, "myIntIO" generic instantiation is confusing the parser ... SE doesn't show get_time in the Defs window until the "myIntIO" definition is commented out.

Code: [Select]
with Text_IO;

package body time_helper is

   procedure get_time is
      package myIntIO is new Text_IO.Integer_IO(Integer);  use myIntIO;
      x : integer;
   begin -- get_time
      myIntIO.Put_Line ( x );
   end get_time;

   procedure next_day is
   begin -- next_day
   end next_day;

end time_helper;
