[CLOSED] UltraEdit
 Login/Join

I've seen some discussion about editing tools and noticed that UltraEdit was mentioned several times. I have built a word file, auto-complete file, and an add-on pgm for UltraEdit. The pgm allows you to execute focexecs from within UltraEdit. It prompts you for the amper variables needed to run the fex and then runs it for you. The word file does syntax highlighting for you. If anyone is interested, let me know and I'll let you have it. No warrantees expressed or implied! Big Grin

I'd like to take a look at it.. I've been developping mainly in UltraEdit and the odd adhoc request in WebFocus... I just don't like how everything is limited to the app folder in DevStudio.

Do you have it posted somewhere?

Thanks!

Leo

B, the ultraedit folks have a site where you can download a focus add-on that does syntax highlighting. its a bit outdated but still quite nice.
Perhaps you could offer your addin to them and thru them.

I sent it to them and explained what it was for and never got a reply and never saw it posted anywhere. I did submit the WebFOCUS wordfile that's out there now but I've made changes to mine since then.

Works great!

thanks alot for what you've done.. its nice to be able to run reports directly out of UltraEdit and I really like the AutoComplete feature as I look up different functions on a regular basis.

great work!

I must admit I took the FOCUS word file and modified it. So I can't take all the credit. I'm glad it's getting used anyway.

The greatest thing about using UltraEdit is that the programs you submit no longer have to be under the /ibi/apps directory. It even runs files we have on a network shared drive such as in s:\requests\custdetails.fex.

This gets around one of the major peeves I had with Developer Studio.

Hi,

I never received the files for the ultraedit interface, of course my Spam Jam may have got to you.

Please email to lcross@mail.unomaha.edu.

Thanks so much.

I've made some changes to run.htm to fix some bugs and include some functionality enhancements made by Leo L. Thanks to Leo, if the FEX has no amper variables it will auto-submit. If you would like an update let me know. Everyone who got the files on 08 Apr or later has the latest version.

Your work sounds awesome.

In our DevStudio setup, all of our files are on our unix system (nothing on Windows).

Would your UltraEdit mods work in this scenario?

We're currently using EditPlus as a 'side editor'. It lets us open/save using FTP instead of the incredibly slow method used by IBI.

Yes. Our reporting server is on a Sun Solaris and the client is on W2K. It works for both using FTP or SFTP.

Hi Boogarweed

Great job. It works perfectly. There is only one problem. I cannot run any fexes in UltraEdit that include other fexes in them. I get

(FOC227) THE FOCEXEC PROCEDURE CANNOT BE FOUND:

Even though the included fex is in the same directory.

Is there a way to fix this? BTW, Currently I use Textpad to edit my fexes and I execute the fexes from the Dev Studio GUI interface.

The included fex has to be on the reporting server (in the app path) not where you are running UltraEdit from.

If you have installed Windows XP SP2 you will be prompted everytime you try to execute a focexec if you want to allow blocked content. If you would like to turn this off you need to check the box labeled "Allow active content to run in files on my computer" under "Internet Options" --> "Advanced" in Internet Explorer. Be aware that this may allow things you don't want....

Hi Boogarweed

I am new to webfocus. I would like to implement autocomplet feature on text box i.e. same as on google. User will type and it will pick the values from database from where user can pick the value accordingly.

I look forward to hearing from you soon.

Regards,
Mustafa

Rats, I was hoping this was going to be a "UltraEdit vs TextPad" discussion revival. I was so hoping to further extol the virtues of TextPad since it's clearly superior.

Have you compared TextPad and EditPlus? EditPlus is my fave Windows program.



Mustafa, this ancient discussion has nothing to do with what you want to do. I suggest posting a new question. Auto-completion can be achieved with JavaScript.

I paid $30 10 years ago and it's one of my favourite Windows programs. It gets updated regularly and is worth more than $30.
