Very Useful Function : Reload the new code

 [1/4] from: brett::codeconscious::com at: 14-Mar-2002 23:38

You could add it to you local folder and make an icon for it by editing the index file. If I understand you, it should be enough I think Right click the "Local" folder icon on your Rebol View desktop. Click "Edit" Insert a line like the following: file "test" %test.r info "My test program." Click "Save", and then "Quit" Copy your test file into the "local" directory under your "View" directory. Then just click your new icon to test your program! Brett.

I don't know if this helps, but you could gut the code below to get the sort of effect you want. This code is my wrapper for an application. The payload -- the main application is the line Do %esinMain.r. The rest of the code simply wraps this in a Try block. If an error occurs the error recovery does one of two things: -- If the error is a specific user error it automatically restarts. The application triggers this error to force the sort of restart you want -- somewhere in the depths of the application this line triggers a restart: make error! "restart-request" --Any other error is logged and reported, and the user offered the chance to restart or quit. (Watch out for strings wrapping across lines in the cut'n'pasted code) Sunanda. --------------------------- rebol [title: "esinGo.r"] ESIN-VERSION: "00.00.03" ;; Sign-in /user identification / data integrity checks ;; ---------------------------------------------------- do %esinSign.r ;; Repeated execute application until exit ;; --------------------------------------- while [true] [ ESIN-ERROR: copy [] error? try [unset 'ESIN-ERROR] error? try [unset 'GLOBAL-ERROR-MESSAGE] ;; Run the application ;; ------------------- If error?

Hi all ! I'm analyzing the time I take to develop and I see that a large part to develop is going back to the shell, re-execute my .r file to open a new VID window to see the changes I made in the code. And afterall, close the 300 windows opened each day 8-)) So I'm thinking it will be easier to place a button in my window that could reload... Is there somebody who already developed a function placed on a button for VID that could : 1) completely free the memory with the old code 2) and re-load the new .r and re-open a new window ..or someone who got ideas how to do it ...

Superb ! Thanks Sunanda. It's very useful. I put a button in my application, to restart the application when needed. It's precious seconds saved ... Philippe
