New features in GExperts

Recommended Posts

GExperts has recently gained a few new features:

  • Two new experts to start/stop recording and to replay a keyboard macro. These are minimal experts which allow you to add additional keyboard shortcuts to the existing IDE functionality. The idea and the code were contributed by Dejan M.
  • Goto Previous / Next modification Editor Experts. These again ...

Please file a bug report on SourceForge. And be more specific in it.

Hi Thomas,

Is this something that could be merged into GExperts?

Hi Ian,

 

first: Please start a new topic for requests like this. Or even better, file a feature request on SourceForge.

I have no idea. I have not really understood what this does and how it works. When you file a feature request, make sure to add a short description of the functionality.

I can't blame you. I have the same problem with GExperts.

Thanks for maintaining GExperts!

 

In the latest release (but also in older releases), some action seems to take over the shortcut Ctrl+Alt+C which is usually reserved for showing the CPU window in debug mode.

 

I only found the editor expert "Copy Raw String" with this shortcut, and disabled it, but the shortcut is still "caught" by some GExperts code. If I disable GExperts, everything is fine again.

I used to think that the long-time failure of the CPU-window short-cut was an inexplicable Delphi bug, but I have always used GExperts in many Delphi versions.  Thanks for identifying the probable source and I second your request for a fix (and the thanks for maintaining GExperts)!

Answered on SourceForge (with apologies for believing the original report without testing).  It turns out that Ctrl-Alt-C is one of the shortcuts defined and documented by MMX Code Explorer, and is easy to change.   And I was pleased to discover the very useful list of shortcut key owners in GExperts, which I had never enabled before!

@mael

Which Delphi version are you using?
And what does the GExperts -> Keyboard Shortcuts expert show for Alt+Ctrl+C on your installation?

 

Please answer on https://sourceforge.net/p/gexperts/bugs/114/

I replied there. Couldn't find my old account information, so I had to make a new one.

 

As can be seen there this is not related to MMX, and I did not make a wrong bug report @timfrost.

In my case the problem of the inability to select CPU view is related to MMX, but I also now agree with you that  GExperts is involved also.  I have been experimenting with both the checkboxes in the Delphi IDE key mappings, and the key mappings display in GExperts, and there are inconsistencies.  I also tried Ctrl-Alt-D which picks an MMX action, even though Gexperts shows it in yellow.
