[REBOL] Re: editor
From: jim:clatfelter at: 29-Jun-2002 18:00
Thanks very much! That's all it took. Now I can use the keyboard and the
buttons and the scroll-bar and never lose the caret. Now the find button
works right. It always searches from the caret position. Before, it began at
the top of the file if it was dirty. I'll keep all the information you gave
in case I run into trouble later.
There's still one thing that's not quite right yet. I have to write a
function to update the slider when I use the cursor keys. I'll try that on
my own. I'm also going to add a delete and a backspace button. And I need
buttons for html tables.
I forgot that the rebol editor is just a file (editor.r). It has some
interesting code in it -- such as keymap. That's how they code the page up
and down keys to move the slider. I think I can get that on my own. I hope!
If I get this perfected, I'm going to take out some of the personal web-page
code and submit it to the script library. I'll post it to my web site first.
Adding buttons should be easy for anyone who wants code with their own
preferences. I don't know what other features would be needed for a good
program editor. All I've heard is color coding the syntax. That's nice, but
I don't miss it much.
Anyway, thanks again!
