why is the description field for a project so short? :)

Hi Hiroshimator

The only reason: The File menu would look rather stupid with a string length of 250.
I guess I could expand it a little.

1 suggestion: allow unlimited size
only show first say 27chars and add "..."

Hi Hiroshimator

Unlimitted text lenght would involve a mayor change in RadASM and is also not what this description was intended for. There alredy exist better ways for lenghtly descriptions.
I have made some small changes so you can now enter 127 characters. On the menu the text is limitted to 25 characters.

maybe a little offtopic,
not really essential but i also miss comment blocks support in RadAsm..

i usually use:
comment ~

this is a comment block
blah
~
would be nice to see it in the next version :tongue:

Keep up the good work KetilO :alright:

Thanks, KetilO - this is a feature I'll enjoy, too.

Savage: pardon my ignorance, but isn't "COMMENT" supported by the assembler you're using?

Ya in MASM if i remember correctly its:

COMMENT %

alalalalalal weeeeee ha!

%

:NaN:

What Savage was stating, is that he'd like the COMMENT
keyword to be supported by the syntax highlighter, imho.

Hi KetilO,

I would rather prefer a function that comments/uncomments a selected lines block triggered by a hot key like

CTRL+SHIFT+C --- comment out selected lines block using "; "
CTRL+SHIFT+U --- uncomment selected lines block removing "; "

-- example --
...
mov eax, 0
invoke DummyFunction
ret
...

-- after commented out: --
...
; mov eax, 0
; invoke DummyFunction
; ret
...
--

Sorry for that -- I just saw it in the format menu ( F10 and Ctrl+F10 )
Its already there, stupid me :grin:

One thing i can think of is the select-and-intendent.

Example:

you got



.IF blah
.WHILE blah
doh!
.ENDW
.ENDIF


and if you select that code and presses TAB, it will change to


.IF blah
.WHILE blah
doh!
.ENDW
.ENDIF


instead of changing to a TAB.

Exactly ;)

As long as we are on the nice features....

How about auto-selection of an indentation level? Just pressing a key combo selects the block of text of the indention level of that line. All these features could be put into an Addin, except COMMENT support. I need to finish the two I'm working on right now...

Nordbon, that feature is there: F9 / Ctrl + F9
