Title: making 'f's collapsible in defs view under namespace symbols for Tcl
Post by: bobl on December 13, 2013, 09:33:12 pm
I'm doing some Tcl in slickedit 10 for windows.
It's going well...
Procs are appearing as f's which is no problem.
I use namespaces a lot and the procs within them are clearly shown as belonging to them as are global variables.
It would be helpful to be able to collapse/expand the f's and globals so that only the namespaces show when I want a condensed view but I'm not sure how.
Any thoughts much appreciated.

Did you try right click in the defs window -> functions -> uncheck "procedures"

I'm very grateful to you for drawing my attention to this facility of which I was, as you correctly suspected, completely ignorant. What a useful facility!...wish I'd have asked much earlier.
Thank you very much indeed
Edit...
Looking at it though I was more after clicking on a namespace and having JUST it's procedures showing i.e. as if they are child nodes of the namespace one. If it's not easily do-able...the improvement you've given me is a big step forward.

I don't have version 10 to try.  All I can suggest is that you try all the options in the right click menu and look up the help on the defs tool window.  You could also try selective display.  It should let you collapse namespaces and functions.

Thank you very much for your further suggestions.
