outline of the edited code

Author: ulrichmerkel@web.de (ulrich-merkel)

I followed the tutorials and reached the state where I work with the Script Editor.   In U9, we have an outline of procedures of the edited code which can be used to jump to the entry definition.   Because it speeds up modifying code, I wonder if this could be added to the editors as well. At least some "GoTo" or "Find Definition" in the popup menu would be helpful.

  1. In the Script Editor Worksheet, hover your mouse over on an object in the Component's Structure Navigation Tree. This makes a right pointing triangle viisible behind the object. Click on the triangle to invoke a pop up menu which shows the triggers, operations and entries defined for that object. Clicking on an item in this menu takes your cursor to the first line of code of the selected trigger, operation or entry

  2. Well, I found it and it gives me the list you mentioned and the positioning works as you described. But in U9, the outline is always visible and I use it not only for navigation, but to check what is the spelling of some entries. Important when one works for a customer to reach a deadline and has not the time to learn all the different local abbreviations.   Over the weekend, I run the U10 tutorial on the U9 and found that I got more more support on "the old" platform as with the current U10-UI. This is not only I am used to use U9 (under U10, I run tutorial 3 times to reduce the "beginner effect"), but tiny differences reduce productivity like: - the dropdownlist of widgets do not jump to a matching occurence when I press "U" on my keyboard, instead I have to scroll - when I use "move up" on a field a couple of times, I always have to catch the moving occurence again to start the popup menu again - and i lose the input whenever I do not finalise it with the ENTER key. This happens even when I just jump to another application using ALT-TAB.

  4. Hi Henk,   thanks for the information that the current U10 has some "work-in-progress" areas. Is there already some date when more features like keyboard support will be available for U10?   TIA, Uli   P.S. one "L" is sufficient to spell my
