SlickEdit® / Debugging a dynamically loaded DLL on Windows.
« Last post by smartin on November 08, 2018, 06:12:46 pm »

I have a C++ Windows application that is made of 2 parts. An EXE that is started and then at some time later will use LoadLibrary to load a DLL.

When the EXE is started, all breakpoints in the DLL are invalid.

In Visual Studio after a DLL is loaded, the breakpoints are reprocessed so that they are automatically enabled.

In SlickEdit the breakpoints are not reprocessed, making debugging a real bind.

SlickEdit® / Re: vi emulation not preserving last command correctly (aka cw)
« Last post by b on November 08, 2018, 06:06:29 pm »
Back from a hiatus.  I upgraded and cleaned things up and now am unable to reproduce this.  It was annoying and frustrating at the time, but now that I can't reproduce it, thus this issue is a non-issue.
Features and/or Improvements / Language Server Protocol feature request
« Last post by rowbearto on November 08, 2018, 05:28:44 pm »
Would be nice if SlickEdit could support Language Server Protocol for things like "find references", "goto definition", "autocomplete", "hover" (code browsing operations). There have been various other threads about this, but not sure I've seen one yet in the "Features and/or Improvements" board.

Notice that Apple just announced they will support Language Server Protocol in XCode:

Various other editors/IDEs already support it: VIM, Emacs, Sublime, VS Code, Zeus

Github and Facebook are collaborating on implementing it in Atom-IDE:

I rolled my own SE macro and scripts to support LSP which I use with the cquery code browser based on Clang, and there are many cases where it does a better job of filtering out references of overloads and same names symbols in C++. cquery also performs preprocessing of header files while SlickEdit doesn't do preprocessing.

SlickEdit® / Re: slickedit closes all by itself
« Last post by Lee on November 08, 2018, 05:00:21 pm »
That sounds more like crashing rather than closing.  If I had to guess I would say maybe a tag file has been corrupted, and that accessing is causing an exception that isn't caught or something we haven't seen before.  If you attach a debugger to a running process and then try to repeat your steps, you may be able to capture a dump file of any exceptions that are occurring.  If it is not an an exception, then will have to try something else, like maybe something is triggering fexit command.
SlickEdit® / Have function-argument-help stop at blank lines above comment block
« Last post by pmsteinm on November 08, 2018, 04:58:47 pm »
For years I've used the fact that "function-argument-help" shows the comments in front of a function. I've worked around the behavior where it shows all comments and whitespace above the function as part of the help. This is more of a problem with Python where there isn't a closing brace from the previous method.

For example, if I have:
  # some comment at the end of the last method

  # Method: blah
  # Does stuff
  def blah:

With the above code the argument popup shows:
  some comment at the end of the last method

  Method: blah
  Does stuff

I would like it to just show:
  Method: blah
  Does stuff

Is there a way to make function-argument-help only grab the comments up until the first blank link?
SlickEdit® / Re: find-in-files does not remember settings between SlickEdit invocations
« Last post by Lee on November 08, 2018, 04:50:27 pm »
Thanks for the report.  This issue has already been reported and will be addressed in upcoming hotfix release.
This does not happen if I first run vs and then open the .vpw file, but it does happen when I pass the path to the .vpw file on the command line.

I can reproduce this behavior with a default config:
  • Run "vs +new -sc <new-directory>"
  • Close SlickEdit
  • Run "vs +new -sc <new-directory> <path-to-vpw>"
  • Change "Look in" and "File types" find-in-file settings
  • Close SlickEdit
  • Run "vs +new -sc <new-directory> <path-to-vpw>"
  • Observe: find-in-file settings did not get restored as expected
SlickEdit® / Re: How to disable minimap from ever showing up?

SlickEdit® / find-in-files does not remember settings between SlickEdit invocations
« Last post by sigmund on November 08, 2018, 04:13:21 pm »
When I start up SlickEdit 2018 and run find-in-files I always get the workspace directory specified for "Look in" and "*.c;*.cxx;*.cpp;*.c++;*.h;*.hpp;*.hxx;*.h++;*.inl" specified for "File Types".

Then I change the settings to "<Workspace>" and "All Files (*.*)" before pressing "Find" and all is fine.

However, after closing SlickEdit and starting it again the values in the find-in-files dialog are restored to what I started with.

This was not the case before I upgraded to SlickEdit 2018.
SlickEdit® / How to disable minimap from ever showing up?
« Last post by ealbers on November 08, 2018, 03:40:05 pm »
How do I disable the "Minimap" "feature"?  I've tried View/minimap checkbox, it keeps showing back up.
I'd like to never see the thing again, or any other 'feature' which takes up valuable pixel space in my editor.
