2. An option to appearance only one procedure in code editor,
like Visual Basic.

Hi Jnrz.

The problem is that VisualAsm does not found MASM.vas
that is in folder KeyFiles.
Go to: tools-options-Files & paths and specify the path for KeyWordFile.

Can you give me the path?


Thanks once again.

If you set all paths as required from Tools-oprtions-Files&Paths, and still your listbox is not enabled then your masm.vas file has, for some reason, changed. I suggest you extract masm.vas only (form the zip you downloaded) to the path you already set and all should be OK. Please let me know.

Please do not change your "magic" Visual ASM path. It finds small bugs!!!

Anyway, let's be serious, thanks once again Jnrz.

Hi akyprian

Nice small IDE.
- the .vap extension is used by MS Visual Studio 6, I have to manually edit it to open the proyect with Visual ASM.
- can you implement the IDE to go to the system tray.
- a toolbar button for the code explorer will be quicker to use than the one in the menu.
- display a list for the struct members.
- maybe a visual resource editor. ( I use the one from VC++)

Thank You akyprian.

For every new release I try to make it even smaller AND faster.

[- can you implement the IDE to go to the system tray.]
Good Idea.

[- a toolbar button for the code explorer will be quicker to use than the one in the menu.]
You 've already suggested this and I've already implemented it. You will have it in the next public release.Thanks for this suggestion, I really like it.

[- display a list for the struct members.]
When I am finished with some other stuff, be sure that I know that this is very important.

[- maybe a visual resource editor. ( I use the one from VC++)]
I know and I will do.

Regards and Thanks for all your suggestions. When there is constructive feedback, things can only get better.
