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
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:


alalalalalal weeeeee ha!

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

-- 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.


you got

.IF blah
.WHILE blah

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

.IF blah
.WHILE blah

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
