Putting an edit item into services.r in rebol/view
[1/4] from: davidba:speakeasy at: 19-Oct-2005 20:18
I am trying to add an edit to the menu in rebol/veiw. It is my understanding that adding to the services.r file will give you new functions(services) across the top. I'm all for using shortcuts, but I really would like to have a way to invoke the editor from a set of menus or functions or services or what ever you want to call them. Now to my question. Is there anyway to invoke the editor using a command and placing that in the services.r file? Quite possibly, I should put the Control-Shift E character in the text file to invoke it through the shortcut. I'm now sure if that maps to an ASCII character or not that I can put into a text file. Has anybody seen this problem, or run across it and solved it? Please let me know if you have. It maybe a newbie question, but I'm learning more everyday, and I appreciate having a group of like-minded people to give me help without judging me a moron. David B.

Thanks Phil, That thread helped me understand quite a bit about what I had to do. It now works from the services menu, but I would still like to invoke it the same way you would the shortcut. I'll stick with what I have, as long as no-one else reveals the secret. David B.

Its inbuild. Editor starts when you click on a *.txt (white paper icon), or right-click on another icon and choose edit. If you often need a filerequester, link to a scratchpad in bookmarks and then go to other files from open.
