http://notepad-plus-plus.org/features/function-list.html

(i know also some users useing sublime editor but its not free.)

Function List define in functionList.xml
(do not put inside remark block...)


my current state, it list the functions & types's


Menu Execute...


my current user defined language see attachment (download button at right), you can import there.

i used editor backcolor blue (0,0,128) in stile/design/default/Global Style/Default Style/Background.

Hey Markus,

this is looking very good. I was missing a function list in the AGK1 IDE so I will give it a try, definitely.

Thanks for sharing

It's worth trying.
hint: do not forget to start compiler with open tab main.agc file.

Sublime is free with a nag every 10 saves. A very un-intrusive nag.

today i try reg expr. with a test app and change the value for mainExpr and nameExpr
above in functionList.xml

it should also list Type's now
Quote: "Function\s*\w*\([$ÄÖÜäöüA-Za-z0-9_ ,.#]*\)\s*$|^Type\s*\w*[$ÄÖÜäöüA-Za-z0-9_ ,.#]*$"


Name in List or ""
Quote: "\s[()$ÄÖÜäöüA-Za-z0-9_ ,.#]*$"


this 2 regular expressions are not perfect but works.

@Naphier
hmm,ok, he said "There is currently no enforced time limit for the evaluation."

that's right, there's no enforced time limit. I've been using it for about a year. After you save a file it sometimes asks for you to buy with a very non-intrusive popup window. I feel a bit guilty I've used it for so long with out paying, but the license fee is a bit steep. I use N++ for all of my web development and I like using Sublime for AppGameKit a bit better. Mainly the multi-line editing, GUI, and snippets, but N++ is a great program too.

today i had upload a new agksettings.xml,
see above in download.
today i know much better how the settings for syntax highlighting needs.

one problem i have with folding
if "exitfunction" exist inside a function it find "function" inside "exitfunction" and think it is a start block too^^

@mod
please can u stick it at top with other sticky topics?
