TOPIC: Navigation fields of VS editor registered with XS

Navigation fields of VS editor registered with XS 2 years 4 months ago #1195

Hi, I have Vulcan and XS on my computer.
Is it possible to activate the navigation bar in the upper part of the editor for the prg files with XS? I believe that this is already possible, only it does not work, because the files are registered with Vulcan.

Thanks
Arne

The XSharp project system should be able to detect that a file is part of a X# project.
The Navigation bar is not filled for X# at this moment. It is in an internal development build, but we had some problems with refreshing the bar when you were editing the source.

I expect that this will be included in the next build, which should be available in a few weeks.

Many thanks, this is ok, I can wait.

The most important is that all code compiles and everything runs as previously compiled with Vulcan.

Hi Arne,

> The most important is that all code compiles and everything runs as previously compiled with Vulcan.


Can you elaborate a bit on this please? I have seen some of your code (the Macro app), about 130,000 lines fully compiled in x# now and running well, but I think this is only a small part of your actual code. Do you have much more than that now in x#?

Hi Chris,

yes, of course I can furnish some numbers.

We have an internally used application that is now compiled completely in X# and that is now used in the test phase. We have currently no open issues. The VO(X#) code used including our system libraries should be about 500000 lines.

We have a big ERP application called "Radix". The VO coded parts now compile nearly completely in X#, but several issues must still be resolved before being able to test it outside of our conversion program. The issues are not X# related, they existed already when compiling the program with Vulcan: late bound calls with reference variables, incomplete parameter lists of late bound called typed methods, variable type issues, memory corruptions in combination with Crystal Reports, pointer issues, ...
I hope that in April most of the issues are resolved.

This application should have about 2 millions of (hardcoded) VO code including our system libraries. We have made many VO macro scripts for customer specific extensions, it could be in the order of another million of lines of code. Some other millions of lines of code have been written in Delphi, C# and in Oracle PL/SQL plus many thousands of Crystal Reports files. So it is has grown to a big application where much of the important code will hopefully be running in X# still this year.

This is great and gives hope for my own VO software! I'm wainting for my next step until the Xporter tool can read VO AEFs.

Hi Chris,
yes, it is impressive, also your speed adding the missing features. At the beginning of November I could only compile small parts with X#, at the beginning of January nearly everything.

What is needed now, are enhancements regarding the VS integration. But if you can furnish them in April as according your roadmap, it's fine for us.

... and of course I must find the remaining errors in our dotnet compilation, I still hope that everything can be resolved without having to change to much at the beginning.

Hi Arne,

I hear from Robert and Fabrcice they are making good progress also on intelisense. I don't want to raise expectations too high, but I suspect that a first (good enough) version of it will be released in the FOX area much before April!

Hi Chris,
this is very good. What we need is the Windows Editor for the VO GUI classes. I have seen that existing windows can be edited, but I still have to try how code is generated. What I have not found is how to add new windows.

If you can edit a GUI window at this moment, then you are probably using the Vulcan GUI editor, which will most likely not update the source code in your x# project.

Like Chris said, we are making progress with the VS integration. I have added support for Code Snippets, Fabrice has added support for the Navigation bar, Code Completion and collapsible regions in the editor.

At this moment we are merging the code and making some adjustments to make sure everything works smoothly. This included for example passing the dialect and project level defines to the background parser so the parser will be able to show you which code sections are included and excluded with conditional compilation.
Adding the VO compatible editors is next on our todo list for VS.

Btw: We now also have partial support for UDCs working. Most match and result markers are working, with the exception of the list and repeat markers.
All the examples that were discussed at this forum last week are working.

You can expect a new release around March 15 and then the next release short before the conference in Cologne.

Hi Robert,
yes, I meant the GUI editor. It is ok, we can wait.
