I will look into it. At the moment I really have no idea why you are getting that.

Hi,

I've uploaded SkyIDE Beta 5. In this release:

BUGFIX: Dynamic Auto Complete introduced in Beta 4 had errors. Dynamic Auto Complete stayed on once it was set to on. Should be fixed now.

BUGFIX: The object inspector had bugs with the "for" loop detection. Should be fixed.

ADDED: Implemented FULL JavaScript Support. It should work :) I hope there aren't any bugs.

ADDED: Started work on the HTML section. NOT COMPLETED.

EDITED: Collector has been merged with the file inspector in order to save same screeen space.

Regarding the error in Windows 2000, I could not work out what the problem is. No one else has tested it on Windows 2000 so I am not sure if that happens on Gerome's PC only or on different PCs too.


This sucks
There is a bug with the C++ toolbar in Beta 5. It is always disabled regardless what type of file it is. I will upload a new Beta 5 in 24 hrs.

SkyIDE Beta 6 Released. In this release:

ADDED: FULL Digital Mars C++ Compiler Support.

HTML: Enhanced HTML Support (still needs work)

BUGFIX: Set / Change Project Options had a bug. FIXED.

This will make SkyIDE support a total of 4 compilers: GNU C++, Borland C++, Sun Java and Digital Mars C++.
I am considering support for the "D" programming language.

If anyone downloaded Beta 6 7/8 hours ago, there is a new upload again. I noticed due to a typo in the source code, in the "Compilers" section, when having selected the Borland C++ compiler, when you pressed the ... button to locate the compiler, nothing happened. However you could enter the location manually. I fixed the problem with the latest update so when you press the button now, it works.

It's on my list :) I had a look at "D" the other day, the syntax seems to be identical to C++ but it has its own things too. An example: "foreach" seems to be a "for" loop.

Since the compiler is written by the same people, I'd expect to face the same issues as Digital Mars C++ :) but that would be no problem now :) This will take a bit longer to implement. It's a new file type....

Quick Update:

Beta 7 will be a huge upgrade. Here is the current progress:

- An annoying bug/error has been fixed. When saving files, every time when you saved the file, the horizontal scrollbar would scroll back to the left which makes you lose track of the carot. This bug has been fixed in Beta 7 (soon to be released).


- A serious bug has been fixed with the C++ Object Viewer. When clicking on a variable on the object viwer, if the file is large, SkyIDE may freeze. The bug was in the section that identifies the position in your file of the variable that was clicked. This error is now fixed (available in Beta 7).

- Support for D, Pascal and VB Support!

- Many bug fixes and fine tunnings in Beta 7! The Object Viewer has been (yet again) completely re-written so now it performs even faster and lists user defined custom variables/objects! Soon to be released. So far I have added full editor support for Pascal, VB and D including support for the object viewer and the function bars. Now I work on the Pascal and D compiler support. Once I have this done, all I need to do is add project support for those languages but that's going to be easy.

- Many small additions/features present in other IDEs and not present in SkyIDE will be added. Beta 7 will be the first large update after I added multi-profile support. So, in Beta 7:

- Many bug fixes
- Many small additions and fine tunnings
- Full support for D, Pascal and VB. VisualBasic will have the auto insert "End Function" or "End Sub"" just like in the real VB IDE.
- In other sections such as Pascal you would have similar features.

Full list of new additions will be available on the day of release. Soon to be released.

I am happy to annouce the following information.

Support for Digital Mars D has been completed 100%! Yes, it is all done. There will be Beta 7 by the end of the week. Here are some of the changes for Beta 7:

- Added: Full Pascal Ediotor + Compiler Support
- Added: Full D Editor + Digital Mars D Compiler Support
- Added: Full VB Support
- Added: Bookmark as You click (from the left of the line numbers)
- Bugfix: Brand new Object Viewer + serious bug has been fixed. The object viewer now detects variables of any type.
- Bugfix: When saving files, the horizontal bar scrolled to the left. FIXED
- Added: Some New Art Work/Icons
- Bugfix: Fixed bug with Digital Marc C++ compiler output
- Bugfix: Fixed minor bug with Digital Mars C++ project
- Bugfix: Fixed Access Violation error when exiting SkyIDE after drag/dropping document tabs. (It didn't always happen)


Now, SkyIDE officially supports 6 compilers:
GNU C++
Borland C++
Digital Mars C++
Sun Java
Free Pascal and
Digital Mars D!


Now something else...

I think I figured out the cause of the error for Win2000! I cannot test it as I don't have Win2000 but I hope you can give me feedback and tell me whether it works. Also I might have fixed the Japanese charset issue. I am not sure if it works so you will have to try it.

Next: I will add "Search as you type" option in the bottom pannel (Line Search) so it will list all your lines as you type.

I will fix a few other issues related to the F3 Search, Line Number, Emprty Project creation and the splash screen.

I think with this release, I've out done my self :D j/k
Now I need a better/free TreeView control (still looking for one)

I have Win2K WS and SVR. I used to work for Borland doing developer support and QA. If you want to shoot me a pm on how to get your latest build I can do some testing for you this weekend.

P.S. I have never used SkyIDE.

Important Update:

Win2000 error possible fix:

A friendly developer helped me out pointing a link with a solution to the problem.
 
Simply delete SkyIDE.exe.manifest from SkyIDE's dir and re-run the file. If it doesn't work, re-download SkyIDE and delete the file but before you run SkyIDE for a first time.

Update: Turns out this still does not fix the problem. I will investigate the issue deeper. At least now I know where and what the problem is!

 
Also very important,  I uploaded beta 7 (Update 2). Please download the new one I just uploaded if you already downloaded the old one.
 
 
Some new add ons and bug fixes in Update 2:
- Added: Add PHP/VBScript/Pascal/JavaScript source file (Update 2)
- Bugfix: Fixed Project Options (Update 2)

Cool, you fixed the win2k error. So was it the manifest causing the problems then?

Yep! :)

I tried to give BCB a Luna look and my whole project got corrupted. Now, (still is corrupted) the project will not load properly when I delete the manifest file from BCB's dir. Still not fixed but I will fix it. All I have to do is delete the image list controls and re-load them :S I am just reluctant to do it because it feels like it's waste of time but I have no choice, I have to go through it.

Does anyone know if there is any tool available I can use to fix my project without going through the pain of re-loading enire image sets? It's really time-consuming...

I must say I am impressed with the speed you have been implementing features and bugfixes. This has been advancing quite fast for a one man project!

Awesome. :)
Bakefile is really nice, it lets you make one project file that can be exported to automake, visual c++, borland and many other formats, great for cross platform projects :)
